Max5 and new mac book pro ???

Jul 01 2013 | 5:20 am

Hi everybody
I need your help please.

I use Max5 with my old white Mac Book (2009) and Snow Leopard ; is it possible using this Max5 with the actual Mac Book Pro ? (is there any problems around 32, 64 bits)

Is it a better idea bying my new Mac Book Pro now (with Mountain Lion) or waiting OSX Mavericks ? I can specify I use a Motu Ultralite MK3 audio interface, Wiimotes (with OSCulator, ABLETON LIVE, MAX), a Kinect (with Max), and severals Eowave sensors connected on an Eobody sensor box.

Thanks so much for your help.

Hello ;-)

Any opinions please ?

@Zined Max5 currently operates on new Macbook Pros with Mountain Lion. At present, Max5 has not been tested with Mavericks.

HI Tom Hall ; thanks so much for answering and helping me.

What about MAX6 and Mavericks please ?

We’ll address Max6 compatibility with Mavericks when it’s released.

Hey all! I’d like some guidance, too…

My max 5 and ableton live 7 were both working fine on my newly purchased macbook pro, 2012. But once I connected my motu ultralite interface, max and ableton stopped working. They won’t launch fully. Has this happened to anyone else? Any suggestions?

Music music for everyone yay : )

if you don’t obtain an anwer here, you maybe could ask to MOTU support. I’ve just contacted them about my Ultralite mk-3 hybrid, and they are very kind and helpfull

I hope you will find a solution ; please, post it here ;-)

Best regards
