MaxScore requires a JMSL license to run. With a JMSL license you can use MaxScore and develop music software using JMSL’s Java API, as well as use JMSL’s standalone score editor and support for the JSyn sound synthesis API.

Note that we have introduced a new $9.95 license for people exclusively interested in using LiveScore for notation in Ableton Live. We believe there may be users who have no interest in Java or Max programming, and are focused on using MaxScore to bring notation to their environments of choice. This  “LIVE_LITE” license disables editing in Max as well as some Java-only features in JMSL, like the Java standalone score editor, and support for the JSyn synthesis API.
