Any applications that don't need Max

March 27, 2008 | 3:29 pm

Hey all,

I’m wondering if there are any applications written in Max or Jitter that do not need Ma or Jitter to run.
I just want to see the capabilities of passing on patches or applications to others that do not have Max or Jitter.
Thanks

Do you mean like standalones? If you do, check out the tutorials.

Yes stand alone applications that can be distributed without the new owner having any Max software.
Are there any freeware versions of this that you are aware of?

Am I correct in that Livid Union is made solely in Max and Jitter and then created as a stand alone application that is sold on without any further involvement with Max?

Thanks for the help. This may be the deciding factor whether to change from PD to Max.

I don’t know about Livid Union, but yes, you can make standalone
applications that you can distribute, with no further license fee in
Max/MSP/Jitter.

The one catch is that for Max 4, there is a license fee for Windows
applications, because of a 3rd party library that Max uses for the
Windows port. The dependence on this library is gone in Max 5, so it
will be free for Windows applications made in Max 5.
