Where is the Max 6 Preferences Folder?

I’m trying to locate the Max 6 Preferences Folder on Mac 10.5.8. I’ve searched Library/Preferences, but all I find there are my Max 5 and Max 4.6 pref folders. I’ve also done a spotlight search with no results, according to this info from “The Preferences Window” in Max Help:

“On Macintosh, this folder is called “Max 6 Preferences Folder”, and is in the Preferences folder inside the Library folder of your home directory. Your preferences are stored in a file called maxpreferences.maxpref.”

I’m teaching a Max6 class where the students frequently use different lab computers. I’d like to show them the Max 6 Preferences Folder so they can migrate their prefs from machine to machine if necessary.

Thanks for any help.

In Mac OS 10.7, this folder is hidden. You can find it using the ‘Go’ Menu in the Finder. From there, choose ‘Go To Folder…’ and enter:

~/Library/Application Support/Cycling ’74
