MaxScore provides standard western music notation in Max/MSP and Ableton Live
    MaxScore is a Max Java (mxj) object which accepts messages that can create a musical score, add notes to it, transform the notes, perform, save, and load the score, and export the score to popular formats for professional publishable results.
    MaxScore is more than a notation tool. It is an interactive performance object. MaxScore can play back a score and drive your MSP patches through an instrument interface. Scores can be created and modified in real-time and rendered as Jitter matrices. You can add notes explicitly by specifying durations, pitches and dynamic, or use Max to generate an arbitrary stream of musical events and use MaxScore’s Transcriber to notate them automatically.
    The MaxScore / LiveScore Editors will give you the power of a notation environment with floating palettes, plugins and graphics with the option to create traditional or graphical scores and to export them to pdf.

      We no longer officially support MaxScore for Ableton Live 10, but it should work if combined with Max 8.

      As we are constantly performing bug fixes to ensure the best user experience, I wouldn't recommend using older versions. But as I mentioned previously, the combination of Live 10 and Max 8 should work.

      Good morning, I just downloaded the latest version of MaxScore 2 for Max 4L and Live. With the oldest version LiveScore worked perfectly and with his new one it's not working. The LiveScore.Editor window doesn't open as well as LiveScore.Viewer doesn't show any score, unlike the previous version. As advised, I first uninstalled the previous version of MaxScore. The same happens when I open the devices in Max. Live version 11.3.13 Max 8.5.6 Mac OS Sonoma 14.0 Best regards Joao Ferreira Downloaded from here: MaxScore/LiveScore

      Hello Joao,
      i don’t have Sonoma installed and can’t therefore say with certainty that its not due to the OS. Have you made sure that Java is installed properly? In order to test this, please type mxj fibonacci into an empty object box. Does it instantiate? If so, can you make sure the MaxScore folder is inside Max 8/Packages? It can‘t reside in any other location. If not, you’ll need to install the version of Java that matches your OS. Make sure you don’t run Java for Intel (with Rosetta) when you run Max natively and vice versa. Please send the content of the Max console upon opening a MaxScore device to And let’s continue our conversation via email.

      I can confirm that something is broken. I'll have a fix for you by tomorrow which should be good until the end of the year.
