  Work Details  
  The Ircam Musical Workstation project, started in 1989, introduced a new version of Max which added real-time processing of audio signals, the processing algorithm being described in the same patching paradigm. This software was distributed under the name Max/ISPW, ISPW (Ircam Signal Processing Workstation) being another acronym for the Ircam Musical Worsktation. Max/ISPW was in fact made of two components, one being the graphical user interface running under NeXTSTEP, the other being a small real-time execution engine named FTS (for Faster Than Sound :-) running on the ISPW board based on Intelís i860 processor.
