Buying Max for Live

What is Max for Live?

The Max for Live application uses Cycling '74's Max/MSP as an editor, giving access to new functionalities and programming possibilities within Live. 

Max for Live is available as an add-on to Standard* or comes natively within Suite.

Buying the add-on to Standard

To purchase Max for Live for Standard, visit the Shop page. You will see two options: a regular license and a crossgrade license.

Crossgrades are for existing owners of standalone Max/MSP only. 

If you own Max, and want to purchase the crossgrade, please contact Support and provide the following details:

  • your Max order number from Cycling '74
  • your billing address

We will verify your account with Cycling, and then prepare the order for the crossgrade. 

If you already have Live 9 Standard with Max for Live and want to upgrade to Live 10 Standard, your M4L serial will still be compatible with the Live 10 installation once the program is authorized. 

Offers for Standalone Max licenses

Stand-alone use of Max components is not available with a Max for Live license, however, discounted crossgrade pricing is available from Cycling '74.

*Please note, Max for Live is not supported within Live Lite or Intro.
