Cyclone is here: 
http://suita.chopin.edu.pl/~czaja/miXed/externs/cyclone.html. Looks like 
there are no binaries for darwin, so you'll want to build from source.

To clarify, Pd does not emulate Max, so it might be hard to port your 
patches. Jitter and GUI-intensive stuff, especially. IIRC there is a 
"cyclist" executable that will convert binary patches to the text 
patches that are readable by Pd.
