    Certainly not my intent to sow dissent. While my personal 
preference is very strongly Mac-side, I wasn't even really trying to 
bring that up. I was just poking fun at the recent 30-odd messages on 
Win sound apps. :)
    Well, not really. The real reason I threw the comment in was to 
emphasize the fact that Max/MSP is a Mac-only product, at least for 
the foreseeable future. For those of you not in the know, it really 
is a remarkable programming platform. And just wait until they 
release their looping tool! Full VST support, among other notables...
    And of course I agree very much with Rick: what you have isn't so 
much the point. How you use it is everything. A $30 RDS box can be 
used with more inventiveness and enjoyment than a fully loaded EDP. 
Then again, in the hands of a master, an EDP is a pretty serious 
beast :)...But in the end, it's all about the music.
