Max 7 Compatibility
MaxScore does run on Max 7, but there are a few caveats, particularly on Mac OS X.
- Graphically, certain items will look a bit different since Max’s GUI has been altered considerably. This shouldn’t affect MaxScore’s functionality but calls for some changes on our side as well.
- Since the Max is an application bundle now without an enclosing folder, all resources will have to be moved to another location (e.g. /Users/Shared/Max 7/Packages). This breaks the MaxScore/LiveScore Editors’ reliance on files being in a certain fixed location. We have already found a solution which will be included in MaxScore 0.7, to be released within just a few weeks from now. Plain vanilla MaxScore will work in any cases, but as stated before, the files (and the Java jars in particular) will have to be moved to a new location. On Windows, things should continue to work as expected, though.
If you can’t wait for the new release, please contact me via email at email@example.com for instructions as to where to move MaxScore files in Max 7.
