I am having a problem with Max 5.1.9 in OSX 10.8.2. Max is not "discovering" my MOTU Ultralite when I launch Max for the first time. The Ultralite shows in AudioMIDI, but not in Max. I have tried re-banging the adstatus object, but it still does not find the Ultralite. OSX knows it's there, but Max won't find it.
I can get out of this by restarting Max, but in live gigs this is just one more thing to slow me down during setup.
This seems to be new in Lion. Also new is a blazing fast launch of Max. I'm wondering if Lion is somehow launching Max from some sort of "hibernate" disc image that it created at the last shut down. Just guessing, but it seems related.
Thanks, T Bruce
