Newbie MaxforLive Questions(Just 2)

    1. Please could someone explain how I obtain patches created by Max users? There is a really cool Time Stretch/Freeze patch on the Cycling '74 share page but a window pops up whenever I try to download that informs me I need to Authorize M4L. Additionally confusing, an Ableton representative told me I do not need to Authorize M4L because I purchased it with Ableton Live 8.
    2. Does anyone have a suggestion for M4L devices crashing Live when an audio interface is used?
    I'm using newly purchased:
    Macbook Pro Motu MK3 Ableton Live 8.2.6 Max for Live 5
    There have been some freak instances where I'm able to open M4L devices while the Motu is connected, but the majority of the time opening an M4L device causes Ableton to crash.
