Live API Abstractions

Max 6.1 contains a set of helpful abstractions that demonstrate how to interact with the Live API in the devices you create. These abstractions provide programming examples and starting points for constructing your own patches that interact directly with the Live application. They are grouped by the part of a Live Session they can access and control.

Finding the Live API example abstractions

The Live API example can be found in the Max application folder:

  • Open the patches folder in your Max application folder. Locate the m4l-patches, open it, and open the LiveAPI Resources folder located inside to find the patches listed below.
  • If you are reading this documentation within Max you can just click on the links below to open the abstractions.
