Getting started with Max for Live

Double click on a generic Max device to launch it, and click on the edit button. A window called the Patcher appears. It takes a few seconds to load the first time. There will also be a Max menu at the top, in the menu bar, with extensive help documents. You can hide the Patcher and ignore the device now, it's the menu we're interested in.

Incidentally, if you click on Live (you shouldn't need to) the Patcher will vanish, and you can't use Afloat on it to keep it on top of Live. To retrieve it, double click on the Max device, click on the Max icon in the dock, or use the normal methods like Application Switcher or active screen corners.

In Help there is a Max for Live section. This contains a link to the tutorials, and the first one is called Hello.

perhaps OP is referring to the in-app tutorial sets that were in live 8? those just became available again with the recent release of the M4L Building Tools pack (which is basically a port of the similar building tools from live 8, plus all the M4L tutorial live sets).

so first, make sure you've installed this pack (https://www.ableton.com/en/packs/max-li ... ing-tools/)

then go into ableton's Help View (Help menu > Help View), click the "all built-in lessons" link and then click "M4L Building Tools". this will take you to a list of other links associated with live sets containing code-example/tutorial patches related to a number of topics. just click any of the links, then follow the instructions to load the associated live set.

then you can root around in the example patches, learn the techniques, and copy the code.

handy stuff! definitely look at the live API one if you plan to be using it.

Good point, I've not seen those actually.
