Max 6.0.3 Released

January 4, 2012 | 11:58 pm

Over the last few weeks, it came to our attention that there were some critical issues that were introduced in 6.0.2 that we needed to fix in short order, so I’d like to present to you Max 6.0.3. There are no new features to speak of. Fixes included in this installer are:

Core Audio: Fixes for various crashes, especially when audio inputs are greater than two
adc~/dac~: Poundsign arguments (#1, #2, etc) work again in object box
patch cords: can change color (Windows)
jit.phys.ghost: help patcher now opens (Windows)
polybuffer~: help patcher now opens (Windows)
jit.phys.multiple: Misc. fixes

Please let us know if you see any problems with the above fixes.

You can find these installers on our Downloads page:

All the best,

thanks for the update. My question still: did the bug described in this thread: get fixed? It was told us that the bug would likely be fixed in 6.0.2, however, it was not mentioned in the change log and I got no response when I asked about this. I know, I could just install Max 6 and see what changed for myself, but unfortunately I can’t afford the time to mess with my file preferences again. So I won’t even think of installing the software until somebody wouldn’t confirm that this bug has been fixed…

Installed for 10 minutes and crashed twice already…

@Ádám We changed the app identifier for 6.02

@Rodrigo sorry, without details there is nothing we can do to help.

Just to be clear, changing the app identifier means that Max 5 and 6 can now peacefully coexist and a simple ChangeAll will allow me to change the default app? I’d love to get back to being able to test my productin code with Max 6

Also happy to see that the # args work again.

Let me also add how appreciative I am that updates are coming quickly to address these issues.

‘Change all’ should work fine now.

trying this one
not a lot of problems with 6.0.2 (w/ your last coreaudio fix), btw

Yes — change all does work now — terrific — back to testing with 5 and 6

After crashes I keep getting weird error messages too. I’ve seen "poke~ is not an object", followed by all the red disconnecting patch cable messages a few times now.

Hi Rodrigo,

Sounds like you have some machine-specific issues going on. Please email support at cycling 74 dot com and we will take it from there.

Can somebody explain what this ‘change all’ thing is? Where can I read about it?

You can read about the original issue here:

Basically, on Mac, you can specify an application to open all files of a certain type by default. This was not working properly in the last version of Max, but has been fixed in 6.0.3.
