Max 7 enables you to duet with a singing mushroom

Cycling '74's Max 7 programming environment is coming, and a preview video reveals that it'll let you... duet with a mushroom.

Yep, we're definitely at the teaser stage here - don't expect to watch the clip and learn a great deal about what's new - but we can already see that the latest version of Max will herald the arrival of a new interface.

More videos will follow, which may or may not feature other singing fungi. You'll be able to track Max 7's progress on the Cycling '74 website.
