Does Max for Live work with Max 6?
Yes, however, Max 6 is an upgrade of the full version of Max. There is no upgrade available for owners of Max for Live only. If you own Max 6, you can use it within Live. If you are a Max for Live user, we invite you to try the Max 6 demo for 30 days. There is a Max 6 Crossgrade for owners of Max for Live available.
If you want to use Max 6 with Live, or try a device created in Max 6 that uses new Max 6 features or contains Gen objects, you’ll need to install Max 6 and switch your Max application folder in Live’s preferences. To do so, in Live, go to the Live Menu > Preferences > File Folder tab on Mac or the Options Menu > Preferences > File Folder tab on Windows. Under ‘Max Application’, click the Browse button and navigate to the Max 6 folder on your computer.
