MIDI setup save problem

    Jan 20 2006 | 10:08 pm
    I have the current version of MAX/MSP and OSX and have not been able to save my MIDI setup. I assign my external hardware letters in MIDI setup and then save it to the documents folder. It works for a couple of days but then I notice that the assignments are no longer in my patches and MIDI setup. I used the disc utility as tech support suggested but it did not fix the problem. I am at a loss. Does anyone know about this problem and a fix? Thank you. Jeffrey Krieger

      Hi Jeffrey, Sometimes Disk Utility doesn't quite do the job with permissions. For this, it is often more beneficial to run "fsck" at startup. For info on how to do this:
      You might also try deleting your preferences, which are located in Users/Username/Library/Preferences/Max 4 Preferences.
      If that doesn't sort you out, send a message to support@cycling74.com Cheers, Andrew B.

      Andrew B. I tried the fsck method and I'm not sure what happened. I did follow everything to a tee. I still have the problem. Any other suggestions? Is this a wide spread problem? Is it only me? Jeff Krieger
