Mechanical MAO - Reviews Cycling'74 Max For Live

No installation worries, M4L (Max 'four' Live) is integrated into Ableton Live, a kind of library.
Since version 9 Live, M4L is integrated into the suite, the busiest bundle.

Max loads in the Live set automatically as needed.

No manual to speak of, but a help line interactive, full of tutorials and examples. A search of the assistance is essential if we want to create their own patches.


I'm working on an old G5 and a MacBook Pro, X.9 system.
No specific concern.


I started using Max as an extension of Live, that is to say, to dig into the massive library of plug-ins, MIDI, synths treatments, etc ... For besides the patches supplied as standard, already many, simply login to the site <> to enter the wonderful world of M4L community.

Whenever I am faced with a technical limitation of Live, I found the solution on this site where a guy had the same problem as me and has decided to make a patch to solve M4L.

And then, inevitably, I started getting interested in creating patches ... it's complex, it must go through the tutorials (in English), open all patches already made an attempt to grasp the logic ... but, like Reaktor, the possibilities are endless.

The most important thing is that some tasks can be accomplished only through this app. It's quite exhilarating, because it operates in an environment already well designed (Live), but we can act within to meet its own expectations. It's time consuming but quite enjoyable!
