MI7 to distribute Cycling \'74 products in Europe
MI7 is proud to announce its latest cooperation with US company Cycling \'74 and will distribute its complete range of products in Europe.
Designed for audio, video and multimedia innovators, and the user who is simply looking for something \"different\", the Cycling \'74 product range provides a whole series of open-ended tools to support creative and experimental work in music and video. At the heart of the range is Max, a graphical programming environment in which the software can be made to talk to new devices, new media and new systems. Plug-ins and related applications extend the creative power of the software, providing innovative tools that can be used for a range of live music and video projects.
Cycling \'74 also releases creative musical and multimedia works through their c74 recording label, and audio source libraries for musicians, sound designers and media producers through its Cycles series.
With Cycling \'74 President David Zicarelli\'s background in audio research at some of the world\'s most prestigious academic institutions including Stanford, MIT and IRCAM, Cycling \'74 products such as Max/MSP have been established in the education market for some time.
