Comment on Max/MSP

I have both reaktor and max/msp.

Reaktor is easier and faster to build if you are making Fx and Synth but
Max/MSP just gets way deeper than the Reaktor and it's harder to code in some parts.

for faster result go with the Reaktor, it's deep enough program to get you busy for a long time.

But for making standalone program, not just audio but video too(I made fahrenheit to Celsius convertor using max/MSP once too) and build fx you can sell as standalone vst or au... go with Max/MSP
