What the hell is "demo timing out" ??? I have the same problem today morning, and i wonder what could time out while i own Max since years, bought Live and m4l last week !? I do not want to reinstall Max AGAIN, it's a pain in the ass !
I assume you're on Windows. In c:Documents and SettingsAdministratorApplication DataCycling'74 you find the Max Preferences. In some occasions trashing these and forcing max to create fresh ones helps solving certain issues. I assume as well that the install of 5.1.1 didn't help.
I think this is the exact problem that I am having. I'm going through the tutorials and on am stuck on the one where you actually record something in.
My DSP status only gives me two options for a driver "Live" and none. With either option I choose, I'm not allowed to select and input device, input source, output, or playthrough. I tried running sound through Ableton but I can't get anything to record in. Any solution to this problem?
I'm on a Macbook and only have the Max For Live features authorized. I'm running Max version 5.1.8 and Ableton 8.2.2. Thanks.
