What may cause the error?
Running Liquid Rhythm in Ableton Live, through Max for Live, requires a special WaveDNA-specific configuration file for MaxMSP. This configuration file allows Liquid Rhythm (in clip mode) to find our installed application. When you install a new version of MaxMSP, it will overwrite these settings. Or if you install a new bit level of Ableton and Max for Live (ie, you were using Ableton 32-bit with Liquid Rhythm Clip mode, and then you installed Ableton 64-bit’s with Max for Live), it will overwrite these settings.
In those cases you might get the following error:
The solution is to get the configuration file back into the MaxMSP folder. There are two ways to resolve this issue:
- Easiest solution is to re-install Liquid Rhythm. On Windows you will need to uninstall and re-install. On Mac, you can re-run the Clip installer found in the .dmg file.
- The next step is to manually add back the special code required by Liquid Rhythm. This page outlines the steps required to manually install Liquid Rhythm for Max for Live. Here are the manual install steps.
