I’m I’m using osx 10.8.2
with Ableton 8.3.4
I have latest versions of Max 5 and Max 6 installed.
I tried configure ableton to work both with max5 and max 6 but it seems that max for live doesn’t start.
1. start a new project
2. go to live devices
3. double click on "max midi effect"
4. press the "edit" button
maxMSP opens for a few seconds, I see the messages window for a second
and then I get a message that "MaxMSP quit unexpectedly"
I see the app icon added to the taskbar and then removed with no message or window pops up.
how can I debug this thing further?
any information regarding the issue would be greatly appreciated.
Have you tried trashing the Max Preferences folders? I’d start there. They’re located in User // Library // Preferences. Look for Max 5 and Max 6 Preferences folders and delete them. Keep in mind this will revert Max preferences back to defaults.
You might also want to try repairing disk permissions from Applications // Utilities // Disk Utility, then restarting your machine.
I tried removing max 5 preferences directory, fixing permissions and restarting. issue still persists. max crashes if I try to edit patch from max for live or that i try to start a new mxj~ patch.
couldn’t find max 6 preferences directory.
