Max and especially Max for Live have been taking a very long time to get started on launch. I did a little bit of timing...
Max for Live (without Max open first) took 2:38 to boot! With Max already running this was reduced to a speedy 1:12.
The Max for Live editor (opening for the first time after launch) took an additional 1:06 with Max not running, but was practically instantaneous with Max already open (which makes sense since it's more or less the same as starting a new project in Max).
Max itself is also slow, taking 55 seconds to boot.
Is there anything I might do to speed things up? With Max for Live especially, the long wait just makes the software less approachable, as I like a speedy workflow.
I'm on Snow Leopard on an Intel MacBook running the latest versions of Ableton and Max. Any suggestions are gratefully appreciated.
