Why the slow GUI in Max6? And how to improve?

Jan 07 2012 | 11:38 am

I’m late to the show, but just upgraded from Max5 to Max6 (v6.0.3), and immediately notice that the GUI is pretty sluggish – even on my 2010 MacBook Pro (i5, 2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM, OS X 10.6.8).

Connecting patch cords seems slower than Max5, moving and creating objects likewise.

Is there anything I can do (except turning off overdrive) to improve things slightly?

I have about the big brother of your computer (i7, 2.66, 8gb ram, 10.6.8), and I don’t see any of the sluggishness in there. Our machines aren’t all that different, and I definitely think something else is afoot than a general problem within max.

It seems turning off overdrive and doing a reset helped – much better now, thanks!
