speaking of max features. to draw connections from one object to several 
objects you hold down the shift key and drag a connection. after you 
release the button a new cord from the source object is created and you 
  just klick at the target inlet instead of going back to the original 
outlet and drag the whole distance again.
and alt+dragging an object creates a copy of it, which is another 
feature that I like in max.
