The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the debate was move Max to Max (software) and Max (disambiguation) to MAX, with Max then red'ing to MAX.

Requested move[edit]

There is no reason why the article on the software should take the main "Max" article. So "Max" should be a dab page. Neurillon 14:32, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Strong Support - I've never even heard of the software! This is clearly a multi-meaning word with no primary topic. — SteveRwanda 14:53, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support It might be even better to have the dab at MAX, as is usual with TLA's. Septentrionalis 20:09, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Um... so Max and MAX will both be disambigs? There will be no default article at all? Couldn't Max be moved to Max/MSP, since that's what everyone uses? — Omegatron 21:16, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
    No, I just suggest that the dab page be MAX instead of Max. Max/MSP is impossible for technical reasons: that's a subpage. Septentrionalis 22:43, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support. Vegaswikian 00:34, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Support I think have the dab at Max and have MAX redirect to Max (as per current). Sparkleyone 04:40, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

"Many other artists use Max/MSP/Jitter, but prefer not to mention it. For more on this subject, see this discussion on the Max/MSP mailing list."

The link in question is no longer available, or was removed, from the archives. It should have been archived it was significant.

I deleted the line. The problem is hardly the dead link. Why is that sentence in there anyway? Many lists of notables could contain such a statement, but I have never seen anything like it. The list should contain people who can be verified to use the software. Saying (in an unverified way) that there are secret users, hiding their use, is absurd. If this using Max in secret is a real thing, it should be given its own main section in the article, but that should only happen when someone can come up with actual sourcing on the topic.

The article currently doesn't say what you can actually do with the program, at least for an outsider it may not be clear. --Abdull 16:31, 15 October 2006 (UTC)


The link at the bottom, "many artists uses Max but prefer not to mention it," is broken. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Replicate (talkcontribs) 06:18, 15 January 2007 (UTC).


This whole "article" reads like an advert. 21:50, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

I agree, it does read like an advertisement. (talk) 20:47, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Sadly agree, this article is too far from encyclopedic quality. Full of weaselwords, unverifiable claims and marketing blubber. 13:50, 13 October 2009

Clean up[edit]

What citations / sources are needed for this article to be good? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:32, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Was Zicarelli's interactive composition software called M an early version of Max? (talk) 14:37, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

No, M is a completey independent of Max and was conceived by composer Joel Chadabe. Zicarelli did the programming. (User:Esslk) 22:11, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
