This is more of a generalized curiosity question: assuming someone has advanced knowledge of both Max/MSP and JUCE, would there ever be a reason to choose Max/MSP over JUCE? Are there any situations where Max would actually yield better performance?
Knowing what I know about Juce so far, it seems like the lower-level C++ code would pretty much always yield better performance, as long as it’s well written…
One example I’m thinking of is that Imogen Heap’s MiMu glove software is created in Max4Live. With a professional team of coders behind her, why wouldn’t they choose to build a VST from the ground up in C++, juce or VST API ?
