crashes during edit [Max for Live]
I have been experiencing crashes in Live during editing. I am not in play mode, and the crashes happen when I save the patch.
However, they don’t crash on the first save, it’s much more random than that – usually around the third or fourth save, but it happens every time; I haven’t had a single session that didn’t crash.
It doesn’t matter if I am editing the default max for live devices, or a downloaded device. Live will crash, and I will only be able to exit max itself by clicking "don’t save" in the dialog box.
Really confused as to what’s going on, I wish I had more specifics but I don’t know what else might be relevant….
Any help would be most welcome, as of now I am dead in the water!
Crashes in M4L are not exceptional…
Does it happen also with a new song and a single track?
Well, I’ve had a lot of experience with this exact issue, but you’ve haven’t provided any details to comment on. You might look at the crash report and get a sense of what’s causing it, post patch a crash log here, or (best) send the info to support at Cycling.
For me, it was JSUI code that made M4L and Live unhappy…
Hello Charles and Broc,
Yes, I’m aware Im not giving much to go on, but I’m having trouble pinning any one factor down.
Yes, I have tried with a new song and only one track – it still seems to crash. At first I thought it was using csound~ inside of Live, but I tried it just pasting a simple patch into the default "max audio effect" and "max midi effect" – after a few saves Live crashed.
No JSUI here – I’m wondering if it’s where I am keeping my m4l patches – do they have to be in any particular place (other than the max search path)?
Weirdly enough, Live seems to crash without notification of doing so or a crash log most of the time, but next time it does, I will send one in.
Apologies for not being more specific, but it really does seem to crash no matter what I do, albeit unpredictably.
I have my m4l devices in the same path as the factory devices, ie. Live8Library/Presets..
Seems to me the most "natural" place, but not sure if it matters.
Hey, ive only had m4l since last night and it happened once just then while i was editing a max installation patch im trying to modify to work within live. same thing no crash reporter and wouldnt let me close/restart max until i clicked ‘dont save’ on my patch. Was nothing overly complex a few bpatchers n such but yeh.. sorry i dont have any answers just saying i experienced the same problem.
