GEN and externals in M4L


    Jul 20 2013 | 1:48 pm
    maybe it's obvious for some, but not clear for me what does this mean:
    "Gen works within Max for Live with a full Max 6 license. However, to edit Gen patchers in Max 6 or Max for Live, you will need to own a Gen license, which is an affordable add on to Max 6."
    So can i use GEN in a M4L device if i want to publish it to be used by everyone? Or only those will be able to use it who bought a full MAX6, not just M4L?
    So if i want to publish a max4live device for everyone to use, i don't have an option to use GEN?
    Another question is also about the externals, if i write an external, will that be embedded in the AMXD file (i know i have to compile win and ios externals then)?

      Hi , if that wouldnt work i bet that some of the people would stop using GEN because cant be accessible by others . Dont worry , your gen "stuff" will work for the others too as far as ive noticed :)

      Thanx Kris, it's just strange what does this mean then in the GEN info:
      "Gen works within Max for Live with a full Max 6 license."
      If some has Live9 Suite with max4live, that doesn't mean he/she has a full max6 license!

      I think that all the VIZZable users don't have a full license, and all the modules of version 2 use Gen.

      Just in case if i wasn't alone with the confusion, got an answer from the Cycling74 crew:
      "I guess that FAQ needs an update in order to be clearer. It should read.
      “Gen functions completely within Max for Live. However, to edit Gen patchers in Max 6 or Max for Live, you will need to own a Gen license, which is an affordable add on to Max 6.”
      If you make a Max For Live device and use Gen, the person you give it to won't need Gen to run it, but they won't be able to edit the Gen component either.
      I hope that clears it up for you. cheers, Tom."
