I was sadly yesterday, but I'm happy today. Great help is here.
I made collective file with MaxFAT3.5. No error message told me, when I drop
ped the collective file on MaxPlayFAT3.5.
But I will not use it. Because, I use many bangs to table objects in the

I wait.
I make collective file from old patch with old Max.

Max is my precious software. I will keep respecting your work.
Thanks a lot.

Subject: Paid or not !

Thanks to David Z and all others who help - whether tehy get paid or not

K-) as in the artist formerly known as definitly not what we want by
Paul of ZTT records. Actually it's a Kurzweil smiley as in "happy
Kurzweil'ing" as I run the K2k owners group for it.

I few more questions I'm afraid ;-)
        I seem to have a bug on V3.0 of Max on my 7200/90 which
otherwise seems to be fine.

1)      The poly object is unrelaible. It counts 1,2 quite happily, but
opften jumps to 5 or 6 instead of 3, and tehn jumps again at 6 to 7,
usually. Soemties it's fine. I've tried it raw withbut notein to poly
and a print object and it definitely usually soemtimes well hey it is
softwrae) slips !! Any ideas ! The MIDI going in is fine with no double
triggering or otherwise, as the rest of my programs can work fine (i.e
with an echo thru).

2)      Is there anyway to get a file directory into a max object or at
worst a file selector box which I cna select the name of a file from and
take that as a message value. I'm sure this must be in teh manual, but
I'm only half way through reading it and would like to do it now :-(

3)      Is there anyway of removing the Maxplay menu when you compile
the program as standalone or is it always going to look like a Max
program. Does the pure Ircam one do the same thing ? I'd really rather
not have the Maxplay shell showing - even if it costs me money.

4)      How would YOU split incoming polyphonic chord information from a
NoteIn obejct so that you could treat each say velocity value
differently ? I'm having a bit of a conceptual porblem with combing and
extracting lists.

        Happy Max'ing

How many of you are experiencing computer
hangs while programming with Max?  I mean
with a frequency of at least a few hangs a day
I'm experiencing several a day on my PB165.

If you're in the same boat then please email
me privately stating which Mac model you're
using including a rough estimate of the hangs/day.
