Just checking to see if any of the more adventurous among us have installed Sierra yet. Reports? Does it break anything in Max? Any recommendations from anyone at Cycling about whether it's safe to upgrade?
I'm just running rather complex patch (third-party externals, network communication via jweb, scripting, jitter, map, gen & gen~) and everything seems to be ok. Im running the patch on MacMini (2014, 8GB RAM) and my old MBP (2011, 16GB RAM).
And then it wasn't, but I have determined the problem: iCloud sync. It was syncing my 'Documents' folder which also had Max 7 stuff in it, after deleting the iCloud saved version and restarting Max, it fired right up. So definitely not a Java issue.
I have some projects where i use the "bass" and "bassline" instruments. Instead of an instrument, the instrument interface appears grey and inside it tells me "install java bla bla" or something similar. I have yet not found a way to solve this.
(When) Are you going to update Max for Live so it`s compatible with Sierra?
sierra comes with absoutely no intresting new features except various shit which try to convince you to store your privat data on cloud sites instead of locally and allows the finder to immediately delete files unrecoverably without a warning.
sierra is therefoe the landmark of the end of personal computer operating systems because with sierra it is no longer your computer and your data.
Just discovered that under the latest version of Sierra 10.12.3 Synapse no longer works, but does work under earlier versions. Not a Max problem per se, but that was the only way I could get skeleton data into Max.
Yet another nudge towards going PC ;)
On my new (albeit 2nd hand) mbp mid 2014 running Sierra, the sounds I record with my Zoom H6 won't load into buffers into Max 7 or M4L devices like Samsara. They play normally in Live 9.7.6 and 10.0.2. I checked them on my older mbp running 10.8.5 and it works fine in this OS. To be fair, the situation is exactly the same with Henke's Granulator. Any idea about that ? Tested some other devices with buffers and they don't work either. This is really a bad news. Am I alone in this case ?
