Call for Live 9 testing for content from Maxforlive.com
A growing number of device comments seem to reflect issues with devices in the Library and Live 9 and Max 6.1. With the pending release of Live 9 coming in a few weeks, and the inclusion of M4L in Live 9 suite, it is important that we ensure as many of our devices work as expected on the latest version. Imagine being a new Live 9 Suite user, being excited about having M4L now, running over to the Maxforlive.com library, and half the stuff you download does not work. That would suck!
Therefor I would like to ask the following of everyone in the community:
1) If you have access to the Live 9 beta, please test devices you use from the library, and comment freely if you have issues with a particular device in Live 9 so developers can be notified and take action.
2) If you are a device developer, please test your devices with Live 9 and Max 6.1 and fix bugs as necessary. If you do not have access to the beta, you can still post comments on your own devices asking for beta testers, or on the Ableton Live/Cycling74 forums asking for verification your device works with Live 9 and Max 6.1
3) Continue as always noting both the Live and Max version that your device supports when you post your device. This especially important for new devices that use the Gen features of Max 6 that will never work for users who still only have Live 8 and Max 5. If your device works with Live 9 and Max 6.1, then also remember to UPDATE the supported version information for your existing devices.
Thanks all! The Maxforlive.com community is vibrant and growing and the quality of what you all build is paramount to the perceptions of users that Max for Live is a quality product. Help each other out smashing any bugs in the library so the devices work great in Live 9!
I’ll be happy to do this, although, strangely, I haven’t had any issues with compatibility at all.
I also haven’t noticed any issues with compatibility from Max 5 to 6.
Can somebody give concrete examples?
But I understand there is a general problem with the quality of the devices.
The main problems will be with devices that use external objects, as these wont work at all in the 64bit version until the 64bit sdk is released and developers update their objects. Also I’ve had some issues with some of my jsui objects which instantly crash live when devices containing them are created.
