Slimming of patch cords.

May 12 2012 | 11:18 am

Hello all.

Is it possible to change the thickness of the patch cords down to a very slim Max5 level? My programming style is very tight knit so would appreciate this function but I can’t seem to find it. Perhaps there are some external styling libraries or something that anyone can point me too?

Thank you.

no. i wish. it is a real shame.

you have to really change your patching style. i did, and it works.

or you could change in preferences to use straight cords rather than curved – this might help you.

And even though the cords are thicker, it seems harder to click on one to select it (than it was in Max5). When I try to select one, it happens often that I have to try several times. Little detail, don’t know what did change…

Didn’t you know? You get higher quality audio through the new oxygen-free Max 6 monster cables! ;-)

Seriously, I wasn’t sure I liked them at first, but after all the hoo-ha about rounded corners when Max 5 came out, I was prepared to believe they’d grow on me eventually. And they have.

Cheers guys, didn’t think there was a solution. Pid, I do indeed already use the straight lines. Pm, yes I found that, thought it was just me! Roger, looks like I’ll have to give them a go! I’m surprised this isn’t a Max option, seems such an obvious preferential element.
