Can I use Liquid Music with MacOS Sierra?

Short answer, yes. Existing Mac users looking to update to MacOS Sierra will be able to use Liquid Music. You will need to make sure you have download the latest version of Max 7.3.1 to enjoy the Max for Live functionality of Liquid Music. 

New Mac users purchasing Macs with MacOS Sierra will not be able to use Liquid Music. This issue is on our radar and we will be releasing a fully Sierra-compatible version of Liquid Music soon. 

EDIT: As of June 2017, Liquid Music is MacOS Sierra compatible.

    I am also running macOS Sierra and cannot get liquid music to run.  No matter what mode I try (VST, M4L, or standalone, the liquid music app will not respond.  :-(

    Hi Wes,

    Do you have Java installed on your Mac? Please make sure you have the latest version from Oracle:

    Let me know if you have any issues after installing that.

    I have latest OSX:  10.13.4

    From iterm /usr/bin/java I have: 1.8.0_112

    I installed direct from oracle and they said to run this command: /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java -version

    When I do run that java version is: 1.8.0_171

    Standalone LiquidRhythm is "not responding" per activity monitor and I have to kill it.

    Running LiquidMusic inside Reaper also "not responding" per activity monitor.

    Liquid* not working under latest version of OSX.


    When I click on the "get started videos" on intro screen it hangs "not responding". Now I'm running LiquidRhythm standalone and I'm getting loops. I'm also running LiquidMusic as VST and it's working in Reaper

    I have the same issue as Jeremy DAW. Does LM work under High Sierra at all? I installed Java 1.8 but LM is not responding on Stand-alone or VST Startup inside Ableton.

    Please help
