Hotswapping Inspired by Nature devices can cause Live to crash (Win)

  • Live versions: 11
  • Operating System: Win

Hotswapping certain Inspired by Nature devices, such as Vector FM and Emit, may cause Live to crash on Windows machines.

To fix this, you will need to download and use the latest version of Max, 8.1.11.

By default Live 11 uses the bundled Max version, to change this:

  • Open Live's Preferences > File Folder > Max Application
  • Click "Browse" to chose the standalone version of Max and click "Open"
  • Restart Live for the change to take effect
