New MAx5 and dedicated Linux - Two for the price of one!!!


    Oct 02 2007 | 9:10 pm
    Hi there!
    My goal is to have a dual-boot system on my computer!
    first is the Windows OS, to build my patches and work with audio editors, and... when the work is done, reboot the system to linux, to present my work!
    So, my question is simple!
    Can i/you "make" a minimum linux instalation to run only MAX? and... if i buy Mas/MSP 5 for windows or OSx, do you offer me the linux version of Max/MSP? (Windows and OSx are too "heavy", and i don't need them to run a patch.. a giant one!)
    Just asking!
    Thanks

      This would seem to be possible if you use the iLock option for your registration license. Install whichever versions you need on whatever partitions you have, and the iLock is read either way. Can anyone confirm that this currently works for Mac & Windoze MaxMSP 4.X versions?

      There is no port of MaxMSP for Linux and there will not be one for Max 5.
      Here's the quote from the Max 5 article.
      "And, ultimately, we want to port Max to Linux. (No, we haven't done this yet, but we can now conceive of doing it.)"
      Hope this helps clarify things.

      Don't count on Max 5 for Linux, but at least the architecture had been enhanced, so that it would be possible.
      But it might already work, because as far as I know, there are pluggos running on a Museresearch receptor, which is running Linux under the hood... I believe they simply use wine to do it. Just try if MaxPlay will run under wine, and let us know... I am very curious, but not Linux savy enough to find out myself... ;-)

      there is still a bit a difference between a VST plug-in and a programming enviroment in application form ... and even if debian for 86k really needs 1% CPU less than XP i would still choose Mac OSX to perform.

      As a feature request : Please if you do enter the Linux domain, make it RealTime Linux.
      Because i would like to see which subpatch takes too much processor time. As a whole i would like to get more insight in threads and priorities DO_Ray

      Real time or "MAXosLINUX"!!!
      Kernel and max only...
      ok... hardware drivers too!
      And a small pc and mac application that once clicked twice, hibernates your OS (copy your ram state for a file) and do a fast reboot to "MAXosLINUX", like copy to ram the image file of "started MAXosLINUX" and run it!!! Once on exit option, and after you click "yes, i'm sure", it returns to the "hibernated point"
      Nice ideia??? or not???
