Re: Random crashes while saving

interestingly, i moved some of the midi tutorial patches into a folder under max midi devices, this seemed like it created a copy of the originals. http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu233/solconnection/m4ldevicescrash.jpg if i open one of these tutorial files and directly save over it, i can save m...

Re: Random crashes while saving

I can reproduce this at the moment, computer has been freshly rebooted: 1. Open Ableton and create new liveset 2. Drag 'Max Midi Effect' live device template on to the midi track 3. Click the little max for live button to open patch 4. Save the patch in max. It crashes, there are two dialogue boxes:...

radiobox/checkbox states not being saved

I made a little MFL patch and its working great but i have one small problem. If i make changes to the patch (there are some radio and checkbox controls on it), then save my liveset then re-open it, all the settings in my MFL patches are set back to their defaults. is this a bug or default behavior?...

Re: What did you expect from Max4Live?

I didn't know there was a part of MAX to manipulate the Live program through itself. That sounds quite nasty, or a bag of worms I don't want to get into. Any automation manipulates the Live program through itself. Any digital filter manipulates itself through itself. Even your subconsciousness mani...

Re: simple noob question (variable receive value)

what i mean by the 'input' of receive is the receive source. Instead of hardcoding the name of the receive (or send) source/desitnations, i want to set them dynamically. so instead of typing in to my code "send chan1" and then on the other end "receive chan1" i want to build the arguments for send a...

Re: simple noob question (variable receive value)

thanks, thats a very helpful command :) that got me half way there, but i get the error "receive doesnt understand chan4" (or whatever chan) when routing the output of the sprintf to the input of the receive :( I need some way to 'set' the string so that receive will understand it.

Re: simple noob question (variable receive value)

actually, having gone through that tutorial my problem still remains, i can attach a message box "chan $1" but i want something like "chan$1" but max doesnt seem to do the substitution without a space.
