Download Max and use it free for 30 days.

There has never been anything Max was unwilling to let me try.

Sue-C, Handmade Visuals Artist and Performer

I feel like Max is such a good tool for the people that don’t know much about programming and yet still want to have control over the code for their project.

Andrew Spitz, Interaction Designer

With Max 7, you can:

  • Create: Make your own tools for sound, graphics, music and interactivity in a visual environment.
  • Patch: Connect boxes together to make interactive sounds, graphics, custom effects, and rich experiences.
  • Connect: No matter what you have on your table — Arduino, controllers, synthesizers, DMX lighting, projectors, live inputs — you can probably make it talk to Max.
  • Experiment: Quickly patch together an idea, make a working prototype, or develop a complex interactive system.


Will installing Max 7 cause trouble with my earlier Max versions?

Installing Max 7 or greater will not affect installations of Max 6.1.9 and lower. However, it will overwrite any currently installed versions of Max that are 7 or greater.

Is there a separate runtime installer?

No. You can run, edit and save Max patches for the first 30 days. After 30 days, you can still run and edit Max patches, but you cannot save your changes without a purchased authorization.

Will Max 7 work inside of Live 9 Max for Live?

Max 7 will work for 30 days in demo mode. After that time, a Live user must crossgrade to a full license of Max 7.

Where can I get more information on the 64-bit application?
