I try to do something with something I have, but I can't because
it's missing. Makes a lot of sense.

The problem is that bomb uses a huge amount of static memory
(rather than dynamically allocated memory, like most other Max
objects). So rather than it loading and saying, "Not enough memory,"
the Mac OS is failing when it tries to load it because it's
simply too big. Check out the file size--several megabytes.
That's all gotta fit inside Max.

So, just increase your Max memory partition to something like
8 or 10 MB and you shouldn't have a problem.

I am in the process of trying to convince the programmer to allocate
the required memory in a more dynamic fashion.

i agree that i can't agree...

but actually, it is MSP that can give killer demos - !

when i have shown people my looper application, or even just the msp
examples and tutorials, they have been blown away. when i go into the
patches and show them what is going on, they have been pretty amazed. show
them cubase vst plugins running under max so they can see a slick
interface.

MSP is a great hook for demoing - trying to get people to understand MAX is
a little abstract. but MSP introduces sound and synthesis, which people can
understand a little more directly i think.

now - an MSP/bomb demo... (!!!) this is next in line for me.

when the yogi gets sufficiently sensitive, he makes a humming sound, like a
bee, and in this vibration, hears the dissolution and creation of worlds.

Apple event s are different than apple script , yes?

Aescript the "apple event" object us no longer supported in MAX 3.5 =
is that correct.

does any one know of a way to send apple events from inside max?
