right, i'm on osx as well.
so, basically, launching the 8.4 64bit dmg will install another version in my app folder ?
and not replace the current 8.4 32bit..?

yeah, you should have 2 versions of live in your app. folder. it doesn't replace the 32 bit version.

here are the release notes https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/wha ... sion-live/
i don't feel comfortable telling someone to delete the old version. i will just say, that i am not deleting mine, just in case.

gotcha. read thru all that stuff. just wonderin if going ahead with automatic
app replacement via install is a safe way to go ?
so are folks just renaming the 32bit version ?

In https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/wha ... sion-live/ they wrote: "The 64-bit version of Live 8 will not support Max for Live or The Bridge.". But when I'm logged in I can select to download Max 4 Live 5.1.9 as MacOS 64Bit version. Unfortunately it doesn't work :(

https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/64bit-myths-facts/
here is some more interesting reading.
"Which version does Ableton recommend?
We recommend to use the 32-bit version of Live for most use cases. The 64-bit version should be used when experiencing out of memory crashes on systems which have more than 4GB RAM installed."

On OS X I just named the 64 version "Ableton Live 8-64"
just ended up doing this. renamed to fit bit version.
in the future,..
can i just delete the 32bit version in the app folder without any problems.
as well as do this for the 8.4 64bit when my live 9 update is available in a few days ?

Too bad they didn't add 64bit m4L support. But then who would buy Live 9 if they had...

Hi :)

Thanks for a great update:)

Since we have the 64 bit max and 64 bit ableton, how long before we can use our MAX4LIVE ?

Thanks for the feedback dear brothers at ableton.

:)

Edit: at this point, the m4l implementation in live 8.4x64 should be 1 line of code max? ( if the old patches work in the new environment, they should work here too if im not mistaken)
Editedit: brothers AND sisters;)
Editeditedit: i removed all 32 bit max n live stuff before i installed 8.4 ... Wär gut wenn das klappen würde und das jantze paket funzt..
Editediteditedit: thank you for all your superbness.. Really.. Its very appreciated.:)

Max 6.1 is the first version to have 64-bit support. Live 8/M4L does not officially support Max 6 as its editor, only Max 5. As it is highly unlikely that Cycling '74 will be making a 64-bit version of Max 5 (or in fact doing any development on Max 5 from here on out) I would not expect that there will be a 64-bit combo of Live 8/M4L.

Note that the conversion of Max to 64-bit has been no small effort and even this first release does not support all of Max's features when run in 64-bit (e.g. some Jitter functions). More about that here: http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=45448

Are there any release notes for 8.4? Is it merely 64-bit support that's been added so there's not much need?
