Re: Max4Live, Max4live Lite, Max4Live R/T. Which one are you?

this EUR vs USD pricing confuses me. If I remember correctly, I've always been able to choose which currency I'd like to pay in since my local currency is neitherone of those. technically I'm in europe, though, but still i think i only have paid in USD...

Re: What VSTs can I buy with 299 USD / 249 Euros?

i'm glad I already own max, $99 for me. but max isn't cheap, so I don't know what all the price complaining is about. we're talking about an addition of almost unlimited possibilities to live. i mean, you can mess with the insides of live, add the features you're missing and if you're not up for the...

Re: Upgrade or not

I haven't had a problem with live since the beta testing and even then I didn't have many problems. I'm using a 3 year old macbook pro and it does great!
I support what the others say, though. try the demo, then decide!

Re: Max for Live in 2009?

I don't know. Personally I've had 2-3 crashes that didn't cause any serious damage, so I'm not in on this live 8 being unstable. I've been happy with it from the beginning. Only real bugs I encountered were in the beta. Of course there were bugs, otherwise they wouldn't have reached 8.0.8 by now, bu...

Re: Max for Live in 2009?

@d-track: it's already in beta, it's just not public. I doubt that there will even be a public beta because m4l is just that kind of software. no need to drown the real problems, tested by people who know what they're doing, in a sea of problems from people that have no idea how max even works to be...

Re: Max for Live in 2009?

it's most likely coming in november. remember, novation said that the launchpad has a specially made max4live step sequencer patch along with it and it's coming in the beginning of november. can't run that without max4live can you?

Re: Ot: this flu shot stuff is freakin me the frack out

ah, this flu has been blown way out of proportion. i mean, has anyone compared the death toll to that of the normal flus that go around a few times a year? i think my whole family might have had "the bacon" a few weeks ago, since the cases were increasing a lot at that time, and it was a relatively ...

Re: Trying to choose a 15" or 17" Macbook Pro, will 8 Tracks fit

really, i had a 17" and it was not worth it. the only thing you get from it is an extra usb port (i think it's still like that, right?). It's just too big and the 15" can well handle anything you throw at the 17". plus, you can also zoom out in live to fit everything on the screen. I have live on my...

Re: Hackintosh Experts - Need Info

1. I don't know the answer to. I just use a plain official macbook pro i bought in 2006. Still works wonders for me. 2. depends on what you want to do. if you need to be transferring files back and forth between the hackingtosh and another windows pc, then you should format it in fat 32. Sucks havin...

Re: Novation Launchpad Max for Live Query

If you have the piano roll on the side you'll only have 7 sequencer spots available, maybe dim red and yellow across the horizontal lines that turn to bright red and yellow to represent a note? or green? Looking forward to max4live luanchpad combo myself. Starting to feel like m4l might be released...

Re: Novation Launchpad Max for Live Query

Hmm, interesting project. Not impossible to do. I have a few max objects popping in mind and I think it's do-able. Just need access to the Live-API objects of max4live to figure the rest out, and that won't be until it's released, but I think this tool could be very useful. I'm already imagining it....

Re: Anyone looking for a monome 64?

Well, launchpad or no launchpad, I have to sell the monome. Of course, the monome looks much more classy and is relatively smaller than the launchpad seems to be. I don't doubt that it'll be hacked quickly, though, to work like a monome. That is, if novation will even make a secret handshake, which ...
