i was wondering if there will be any updates to max 6 soon? i'm running it on os x 10.8.2 and it crashes way too often to be able to use for any performances... just unlocking patches makes the program crash.
I'm also running Mountain Lion, but I've had little to no problems running Max/Msp. I have an older 2008 Macbook Pro, but I don't have any problem unlocking patches. Not sure what experience others have had with Max on Mountain Lion. There are a few programs you can download that will monitor your CPU % over open applications. Try finding out how much CPU Max is taking up while running your patches. Was this occurring before upgrading to 10.8.2?
