It seems to me that Reaktor is easier to use right out of the box (a 
higher level language) than max....a great community with downloadable 
ensembles et al...it is fantastic. max's community is curmudgeonly and 
prone to anger (lower level language)...but provides a transparency 
when it come to creating your own sound...max is also fantastic.

"better" default object library is determined by what you mean by 
"better"....

I personally consider "transparent" better.... (transparent for me = 
when the source of creation is not visible/apparent in the 
presentation)

Want "thicker" or "warmer"...? Turn up the "thicker" or "warmer" 
knob....define those characteristics and they can be added in Reaktor 
or Max or VST chainer or Bidule or whatever, I'm sure.......

In fact, I'm going to go work on my "thicker and warmer" VST right 
now......two knobs, that is it.....I'm sure people will beat down my 
door to buy it.

Cheers,
Jeff
