Re: Thoughts on the Eclipse, Fireworx, G-Force, and PCM81

I think this is one possible idea. but the joy of max is expandability 
as you learn more, and you lose that if you don't have the program.....

build a person an instrument, and they'll want more features all the 
time; teach a person to build an instrument and they'll add features 
themselves....for a lifetime....

I found it fairly quick to get up and running with max on a basic 
level, and then I've added more as I've learned more.
