Upgrade to Max from Max 4 Live

    Nov 26 2009 | 6:19 pm
    I was wondering if anyone knows if there will be an upgrade path from Max 4 Live to a full version of Max 5. I know Max users can buy M4L but i have not heard anything about the other way around. It would be really nice if M4L users could get some sort of discount.

      I would also like to know if this is likely to be made available in the future.

      I have the same wish. I started to be more an more interested in Max/Msp by working on Max4Live this last week.

      and Jitter
      There should be a complete bundle with clearly defined upgrade paths.

      We're still sorting out the exact details, but the deal is going to be that total cost of buying MaxMSP or MaxMSP Jitter plus MFL will be the same no matter which order you do it in. We hope to have specifics on how it will all work soon. If you are considering a purchase, are waiting for us to get our act together and your demo has run out, please feel free to write support with your Authorization challenge string and we can extend your demo for you.

      I also would like to upgrade to a full Max license.

      Come on guys... price your bundles already.... why wouldn't you want to encourage M4Lers to extend to MAX/MSP/Jitter. It's all good for the ecosystem you are trying to establish..
      But come on... pricing products is biz 101. Take care of business.

      Was there every any progress on this? I've been holding off purchasing Max for Live to see what options will become available...

      Max for Live is available through Ableton. The cost is USD 299/EUR 249. If you already own Max 5, the discounted price is USD 99/EUR 79.

      Just so there's no confusion, it's called a Crossgrade if you own Max for Live and want Max. There are two options on our Shop page: Max/MSP/Jitter Crossgrade and Max/MSP Crossgrade (For owners of Max for Live)
      If you aren't sure what you need, email order@cycling74.com with details of what you have and what you want.
      Thanks, Lilli
