You can't buy Max 6 now anyway.
Cycling'74 is hosting a Max conference in New York the weekend of October 14-16. They have already said that Max 6 will be a major focus of this conference.
It is hard to believe that Max 6 will not be available by then. By implication, by then Ableton will either have to have made Live 8 compatible with Max 6 or released Live 9.
So I am thinking that by mid-October, the situation will have clarified; and you probably won't be able to buy Max 6 much before then anyway.
Meanwhile, if you don't have it already, you can buy Max 5 now and get Max 6 at no extra charge when it becomes available.
