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. 

What products do I need in order to use Max for Live?

Max for Live is included by default in Live Suite and can be purchased as an additional add-on for Live Standard.

Note: Max for Live is not supported within Live Lite or Intro.

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. 

I own Max standalone, can I get a discount?

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. 

Upgrading from Live 9 Standard to Live 10 Standard

If you already have Live 9 Standard with Max for Live and want to upgrade to Live 10 Standard, your Max for Live serial will still be compatible with Live 10. You will need to re-authorize Live again to activate your Max for Live license.

Why does my Max for Live serial number not work when I enter it in Max?

Max for Live and the standalone version of Max are two different products and require their own separate licenses. Standalone licenses of Max can be purchased from Cycling '74.
