Subject: Re: cycle, bucket, floats (was Max Digest)

I've wanted a bucket object for a lot of things too,  below is a patcher I
use a lot.  The first is called 'symbolbucket' which does what it says and
takes an argument to preset the bucket.  The left outlet sends out the
current inlet, and the right outlet sends out the previous symbol.  You
might be able to use it for floats too using a sprintf command.

Yes, I just discovered that I can't resize them... makes it tough to
build a mixer front panel.

Any options?

Excuse my english

I made a patch with MaxFat 3.5.8 and when I try to reopen the patch
I got this error message:

- error: PowerPC version can't read old format files
Also Open as text don't work.

I try to open it with Max68k 3.5.8 but nothing. This time I was
able to open the patch as text, so I have the text format.

Someone have idea? (Is it possible that I hit the button Old format
in the save window?)

Now what can I do?

Thank

Hey people,

I have a solo tour of the West Coast and Mid-west comming up in Feb. of
1999.  I'm premiering 2 new works (one is a MAX piece by Homer
Lambrecht) as well as performing a few of my own works...I'm kind of
tired of my current rep, been doing a Todd Winkler MAX piece that I
love..but it's time for a change.   Anyone have any MAX pieces that
would work for solo MalletKat Pro or DrumKat?  I write in MAX as well so
I'm not a total pain in the ass musician...once a piece is in my rep it
usually stays there for a few years so, you can get those whopping ASCAP
$$$'s...I use a K2000RS that will hopefully be a K2500RS real soon, and
I will prob be using the new G3 powerbook 233 MHZ, once I get enough
info on it. I will play just about anything (except Martino's
"Augenmusik"), love a challenge, and to have people wondering what the
hell that was...

Lemme Know

xoxo, Amy Knoles

If you have the text format, simply open it, choose "Save As" =

from the File Menu, click on the "Normal" button.
