Setting up Max for Live with Live 8

  • Live Versions: 8.1 - 8.3.4
  • Operating System: ALL
  • Download and install Max 5 and the latest version of Live 8.
    You can retrieve the link to download the latest Max 5 version by logging in to your User Account.
    Alternatively, you can also open Preferences -> File/Folder in order to find the link to the Max 5 download.
  • After installation, open and re-authorize Live. This will also activate Max for Live.
  • Max for Live devices will now be available from Live's Device Browser.

For further help, you might want to refer to the Getting Started with Max for Live lesson built into Live (Help menu > Help View).

Live and Max communicate internally and you won't need to launch the Max application manually when using Max for Live.
