sounds like a broken preferences file.

did you check if the extras path is still present in the file preferences window?

the ./patches folder is included and Subfolders is checked…

There is a bunch of preference files in the ~/Library/Preferences/Max 5 Preferences folder. Do you have a suggestion which one to delete?

thanks o

- for the extras menu, make sure you don’t have a folder called “extras” somewhere in the search path: ./patches/extras is the only one allowed.

- when you start Max the database is updated in the background, this takes some CPU while doing this, that’s probably what you noticed in the CPU usage, but no worries, it goes back down when the database has been updated
