Core Audio Crashes Max Instantly

August 21, 2013 | 8:42 am

Hi.
Max was working perfectly. A few days ago I installed Adobe Premiere, and probably it affected somehow my sound setting, although I have checked everything. Still, Max crashes all the time! Here is the log error

Try resetting your preferences.

In MacOS 10.6 and earlier, Max 6 Preferences are stored here:

~/Library/Application Support/Cycling ’74

Quit Max, throw away the entire Cycling ’74 folder and try a restart.

If it’s still not working, please let us know in support.

BTW – you may upgrade to Max 6.1 on your Max 6 auth if you wish.

Cheers

Andrew

That did the trick!!
Thanks a lot Andrew!

Was having a similar issue, clearing the max6 preferences from application support as Andrew Pask said works great.


April 16, 2014 | 7:50 am

I have a similar problem on a new Mac Pro running Mavericks. Whenever I plug a Logitech usb webcam and open Core Audio it crashes instantly. I tried to find the folder you mentioned to clear the preferences, but somehow I can’t find any Cycling 74 folder in Application support (library). Any help suggestions would be welcome,
thanks!

I got the same issue with Mavericks.
And the suggested folder indeed doesn’t exist.

How do I solve this, I AM STUCK !!!!


June 3, 2014 | 8:12 am

Under Mavericks, the suggested folder is in /Users/HEPI/Library/Application Support/Cycling '74 where HEPI is your user name.
You may need to press the option/alt key and use the Finder’s Go menu to jump into your Library folder.
