MaxScore is a Max package consisting of a number of environments, patches, playback devices, canvasses, abstractions and objects. It’s built around a Max Java object which accepts messages that can create a musical score, add notes to it, transform the notes, perform, save, and load the score, and export the score to popular formats for professional publishable results.
Max for Live puts the vast creative potential of the Max development environment directly inside of Live. It powers a range of instruments and devices in Live. And for those who want to go further, it lets you customize devices, create your own from scratch, and explore another world of devices produced by the Max for Live community.
Create and customize
Max for Live is a platform to build your own instruments and effects, tools for live performance and visuals, and much more. You can open up any of Live’s Max devices, see how they’re built, and change them to meet your needs. You can build your own from scratch using the same components. And you can even use Max to change the way Live works, including the properties of tracks, clips and scenes.
Max for Live can completely change how Live interacts with all things external. Reconfigure connections to hardware controllers & synthesizers. Route audio to multiple sets of speakers from your Live project. Use Live to control physical objects like motors and lights using Arduino, OSC and other technologies—there are infinite possibilities for connection and control between Live and the world surrounding it.
Join a community of device builders
There's a constantly growing collection of instruments, effects and tools. From curious tinkerers to professional designers, Max for Live’s worldwide community makes high-performance effects, customised hacks and everything in between. You can share your own, or just enjoy using the work of others.
