Max for Live & Max6

October 27, 2011 | 2:11 pm

Just read this http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=171850
Just wrote this:

I guess if we install max6, we’ll still have the choice to use 5.
In preferences (command + ,), we can choose that.

BUT, I’m afraid of "kind of" dependencies mismatches etc.

btw, I will upgrade.
I need light speed of gen~

any more infos ?

You can switch between Max 5 and Max 6 for Max for Live usage (you’ll need to restart Live). Max installations are self-contained, so there shouldn’t be any dependency mismatches or other issues with having/using both applications simultaneously (beyond creating patchers in Max 6 which use features not present in Max 5).

yep Jeremy.
this is the "shouldn’t" which frightens me a bit. I wrote .. a bit.

btw, waiting for my teacher quote and upgrading ASAP :)

suspens …


October 28, 2011 | 9:56 am

didn’t thought about externals/libraries (Jash, CNMAT, RTC, Firmata etc) !
What a stoooopid boy…
(however, everything seems to work… normally -including Live’s API devices-)

you mean you didn’t move them? or test?


October 28, 2011 | 10:05 am

didn’t move them, I’ll probably have to do this manually (hopefully, I "colored" the folders so they’re easy to identify) and update "6" search path…
what a great afternoon !

I’m absolutely not complaining writing this.
I’m just like a child, waiting for his present :)
