Sharing Max for Live Devices
To create Live devices that you can give to other people, you'll need to ensure the device is packaged with all the files it needs. We call this freezing a device.
Note: The use of the term freezing here should not be confused with the Max concept of frozen attributes or "frozen tracks" in Ableton Live.
Once you freeze a device, it cannot be edited. You'll need to unfreeze it first.
If you open a frozen device for editing and see this icon in the patcher toolbar
you'll need to resolve any conflicts between the files in the frozen device and those you have on disk before you can unfreeze.
