    Bonjour à tous, Je voudrais rentrer dans le monde de Cycling '74, je suis débutant. J'ai pour l'instant, un ordinateur: PowerBook G4 sous Mac OS X version 10.5.8. Dedans il y a GarageBand '09 version 5.1 (398). J'ai acheté un clavier maître MIDI Akai professional LPK25. J'ai aussi 2 enceintes amplifiées de la marque CREATIVE. Puis-je avec ce matériel, commencer à utiliser un des logiciels de Cycling '74? Merci de bien vouloir m'aider dans ma démarche initiale. bien à vous tous. piouitelavion

      Hello, and welcome to the Max community. My first concern is that the current version of Max (version 6) needs an Intel based Mac. https://cycling74.com/downloads/sys-reqs/
      If you are unable to use an Intel-based Mac, then you can download the older v5 software at https://cycling74.com/downloads/older/ You want the software at the top: Download Mac Version 5.1.9 It will let you use the software for a free 30-day trial period.
      I do not know, if Max will sell a license for Max 5. I don't see it listed on the page to purchase https://cycling74.com/shop/individual-regular/ You might be able to "Contact Sales" and ask them if you can still purchase a v5 license. https://cycling74.com/support/faq_order/

      Hello and thank you for your diablodale mail. Understood, with my computer, as programmed, I can not use Max because it takes Intel Mac to make it work. Thank you also for your 2 links. But for example, is that I can use "M", the software? Thank you kindly inform me. Yours. piouitelavion
