Thank you for very creative and super meaningful help full of super helpful advice backed up with plenty of your experience..
So just because it doesn't happen on your system you think that error is on my side or you are trying to be smart? You are not being fair to me and far from being reasonable. Especially after i listed that i use quite a lot of 3rd party plugins and hardware. I am going to repeat it for you so maybe you will understand this time :
I am using a lot of 3rd party plugins, FX and synths, none of it crashes Ableton. Read again, NONE OF IT crashing Ableton. Only Max for live devices. Someone said that it is because i am using 3rd party max devices. Well it happens with Ableton max devices as well(devices which are shipped with ableton installation). It is hardly OS thing.
Add to that this - This isn't related to music making but add to that that i have extreme configuration (two of them) because i am graphic designer and 3d artist. I totally rely on stable machine because it is my living job. Put it simply I can not afford unstable machine or badly configured OS. So add to my scenario that i am using Adobe CC (no crashing) and i am using 3d Studio Max with Vray and i am using it in production pipeline and everything run smooth. Obviously these apps have their own personable quirks which are not related to anything outside but the point is my machine is near perfect when it comes to stability. I also run Cubase 7.5 occasionally and i don't have any stability problems and all of my plugins which are loading fine in Ableton are loading fine in Cubase as well.
You can continue to toy with my issues if you want but as far as i can see other are reporting same thing.
you can defend Max stability because on your system it is okay but for me, if everything else runs super smooth (and i do have a lot of other things here) and just Max is giving me problems - sorry i am pointing it out to Max to blame. Especially after seeing other have same issues. And keep in mind i am not attacking Max but at this point of time it is unreasonable to call it stable therefore in my view it is not a tool to make professional job done properly
