sorry for the late response (was unfortunately called away from home).
Ok, so I'm new with Max, and Live for that matter, so please bear with me.
@madlab - Audio settings in Max: I wasn't aware there were any audio settings for Max specifically? Where are those found? In case I've misunderstood, please be aware that I do not have the common clicks and pops arising from buffer settings and there's no CPU spiking. When Max is not loaded, or has not been loaded, my Live install seems to be 100%, never an issue, good clean audio at every stage - until I load Max, then I have the clicks and pops, but again, the CPU usage is very low, < 20%. Furthermore (and this just happened) after Max has been loaded there's a chance that Live will crash.
@Stromkraft - as I say I'm new here (I feel I'm far above noob level, I can do some things), but right now I'm just checking out Max and playing around. I've seen this on just about everything I've loaded so far, but if I want to reproduce this I load up Instant Haus.
To me this sounds like a potential classical Max
issue. Unfortunately I'm not using Windows
for music production anymore (was on Win 7). I think you can find quite a few people that have had issues for quite some time with Max
. There may be some workarounds you can make use of to push things into an acceptable state, but accept some hard work to get there.
Hopefully someone on Windows will fill in here.
