    I want my maxpat working in Live.
    Sorry for the noise, I am just knew with M4L, not with MaxMSP, is there anyone to explain how can I save my .maxpat in the .amxd format to use it in Live?
    Should I patch directly in Live? Where is the bridge between files formats? How to proceed?

      You should create an empty M4L device in Live, then it will save as an amxd file. You can not create M4L device without opening Max through Live (AFAIK).

      Where is the command to create a new one? I can't see it.

      Open your device library in Ableton Live and drag a "Max Instrument", "Max MIDI Effect", or "Max Audio Effect" into a new track like so:
      Then click on the "edit" button of that device which looks like this:

      I am interesting in working with the API, but not really sure to understand the way to explore the Applications > Max 5 > Patches > m4l-patches > LiveAPI resources.
      Is there any way to open this folder directly inside the Live browser? Or should I copy each API demo patcher in a new m4l device each time? Curious.
