audio only works once in Max 5

I have a weird problem.

- Launch Max 5
- open any MSP patch
- start audio
- that’s fine it works
- stop audio
- start audio
- doesn’t work, and no MSP patches will until I restart Max

This happens with very simple stuff, cycle~ help, and Extras->Audiotester for example.

I’m not sure which version this started happening with since I’ve been doing only non-MSP stuff lately in Max 5. I’m fairly sure it was fine with 5.0.0. I’m now on version 5.0.4 with OSX 10.4.11 on a MacBook Pro.

Tried reinstalling Max 5, tried with no other apps running.

Any ideas before I send this to support?

Sounds like Demo mode to me – check your
authorisation,

hmmm… similar setup here (mbp / osx 4.11 / max 504), and i’m not getting that problem.

perhaps a quick trash of the max preferences?

Trashed preferences and the whole app folder and reinstalled (except for the interlok extensions since I wasn’t 100% sure which files/folders are relevant to Max 5).

I’m running Max 5 with an iLok dongle. Roger: have you experienced this with iLoks?

I just had a thought. I vaguely recall an “audio only works once in demo mode” thing for MSP but only when MSP 1.0 was first released (I may even have misremembered that).

Is this still a likely cause of my problem in Max 5?

Hi Martin,

Your MSP is not authorized. Drop an email to challenge at cycling74 dot com and we will get you going.
