How to Configure Max For Live to Ableton Live 9 Standard

Post by AESIEN » Sat Nov 25, 2017 5:50 am

I have Max for Live 7 and Ableton Live 9 Standard. I can't seem to find the configuration path from Max to Ableton in the File/Folders in the preferences. I already authorized the app again. Please help?

Are you sure that you're talking about Max for Live and not Max/MSP? Because owning a license for Max/MSP does not entitle you to use Max for Live, both are separate products.

Anyway, the normal way to set this up is to have both Live and Max/MSP installed, then go to your Live preference screen (shortcut: control + ,) and check the File/Folder tab, the option you need should be listed there, at least that's how it works for Suite:

Another way to ensure that you got the right licenses is to go to your Ableton account page, make sure that it lists "Max for Live" as being licensed there.
With kind regards,
