Gen is an extension of the Max patching environment that converts what you build visually into efficient compiled code as you go. Not only does it extend the capabilities of Max, but Gen code can be used outside of Max, with Code Export. Gen includes the gen~ object for audio, and the jit.pix and jit.gen objects for matrix and texture processing. Use Gen if you want to make efficient audio and video processes at a very low level and get immediate feedback.
