Synchron with MaxMSP and DAW via MTC

Dear advanced users,

is there a better way than my patch to synchronise two programs?
I want to play some mono sound files in MaxMSP and Logic.
I cannot get a clean mono sound when I play a same file in two programs.

My patch follows:

You’ll never get audio sync with MTC.

Your only hope is rewire, most likely.

Hm, I have just read other threads concerning rewire.
It does not work.
I am running Logic.
When I start audio engine of max with rewire option, max shous a error message:
ad_rewire: error starting audio. Is Rewire Mixer running?

And I don’t find, where is this mixer in Logic…

Rewire does work, however sometimes on Mac it loses its mind. You’ll probably need to manually delete all its components, reinstall rewire, and then try again.

Logic itself is the rewire mixer. MaxMSP in this case is the rewire “synth” or client. Once you get it all working it should be fairly stable.
