I have patches that I've made in the standalone version of Max. Can I use them in Max for Live?

  • Live Versions: 8.2.2 - 9
  • Operating System: ALL

Yes, but they will need to be copied into Max for Live manually. To do this:

  • Open the original patch in the standalone version of Max
  • Copy the entire contents of the patch
  • Open Live
  • Load an empty Max Instrument, Max MIDI Effect or Max Audio Effect, depending on the type of device you're trying to make
  • Click the empty device's Edit Button to open the Max editor
  • Paste the contents of the original patch into the editor
  • You may need to modify the new device to take into consideration the pre-made input and output objects.
