     right now i'm writing a report on the effectiveness of Pd for use in
spatial audio. i'm also somewhat comparing it to its competition; csound,
reaktor, and of course the various versions of MAX. it's been very hard
trying to understand the current state of things, for example which is
more widely used and has more people working on it?

     i've read a lot about the various incarnations of MAX including jMAX,
MAX/MSP, Pd, and all the old stuff like MAX/Opcode, MAX/FTS, Patcher, ISPW
stuff, etc.

     have any of you tried several different things and have any useful
comparison info? how are the expansions in jMAX and MAX/MSP comparable to
the expansions in Pd like GEM and GriPD? thanks,
