Converting Max Project to M4L

Post by Strubbel » Sun Mar 17, 2019 7:57 pm

Hej

I learned some Max with V.J. Mankos "Max/MSP/Jitter for Music", which is a very good tutorial.
But there's one thing I don't find out: if I open an MAX project, how do I convert this to a M4L patch ?
There are the same MIDIIN and MIDIOUT objects but obviously it does not integrate into Live. Currently I copy everything from the projects and paste it into an empty M4L patch. But then I have to redesign the presentation of the patch.

Isn't there a way to just convert the project ? How ?

Switch to Presentation View, make sure your device opens in said view...

Then design your new device according to the constraints of height displayed in the presentation view.

There's not a "magic button" that'll turn your device into a MaxforLive one ready for use...

Cheers
