Max for Live & Max6

    Just read this http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=171850
    Just wrote this:
    I guess if we install max6, we'll still have the choice to use 5.
    In preferences (command + ,), we can choose that.
    BUT, I'm afraid of "kind of" dependencies mismatches etc.
    btw, I will upgrade.
    I need light speed of gen~
    any more infos ?

      You can switch between Max 5 and Max 6 for Max for Live usage (you'll need to restart Live). Max installations are self-contained, so there shouldn't be any dependency mismatches or other issues with having/using both applications simultaneously (beyond creating patchers in Max 6 which use features not present in Max 5).

      yep Jeremy.
      this is the "shouldn't" which frightens me a bit. I wrote .. a bit.
      btw, waiting for my teacher quote and upgrading ASAP :)

      didn't thought about externals/libraries (Jash, CNMAT, RTC, Firmata etc) !
      What a stoooopid boy...
      (however, everything seems to work... normally -including Live's API devices-)

      you mean you didn't move them? or test?
    • Oct 28 2011 | 10:05 am
      didn't move them, I'll probably have to do this manually (hopefully, I "colored" the folders so they're easy to identify) and update "6" search path...
      what a great afternoon !
      ;-)

      In order to complete words about Max6 & Max for Live, I did this video (some students asked me that)
