Top FAQ

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.

There is one exception: Windows x86 and Windows x64 are separate installs. Therefore, if you install the Windows x86, it won’t overwrite the x64 install, and vice versa. (There is only one installer for Mac.)

Where can I learn more about Gen Code Export licensing?

We have an FAQ page dedicated to it. Take a look and contact us, if you have additional questions.

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.

Is there a separate Mira installer?

No. As of Max 7.0.2, Mira supporting files are included in the Max installer.

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

Max 7 is fully supported as the Max for Live editor. Live 9.2 and Max 7.0.4 are the recommended minimum required versions. Learn about the benefits of a crossgrade to an independent version of Max 7.
