Hygienic beta testing
Aug 20 2021 | 3:19 pm
I'd like to try out the 8.2 beta on my M1 Mac. I've never run 2 versions of Max on the same machine, so I'm wondering what process I should follow to make sure that my existing Max 8.1 work isn't messed up. If I open a patch that I'm working on in Max 8.1 in 8.2, and then save it, will I still be able to open it in 8.1, or should I duplicate anything I want to open in 8.2 and work on the copy? Will anything else in the Documents/Max 8 folder be altered irrevocably by running the beta? What about files in Application Support/Cycling '74? Anything else I should be aware of?
