Hi all
I’ve search the forum and was not able to find a definite answer.

Removing space in message while keeping leading 0

I’m trying to remove the space that is front of a number while still keeping the 0 that is prefixed when the number is 9 or less. I’ve tried sprintf, combine, and regex but they strip the 0 from the beginning of the digit.
Any ideas?

A couple general questions about performance

Ahoy all. Pretty new to max, and my first sizable patch is getting pretty choppy. It starts off great, but as I use it it gets laggy fast. The macbook pro I’m using is almost brand new, and activity monitor doesn’t show much of a strain at all on the CPU or memory. I just [...]

Stuck mira frame

I posted a couple weeks ago about Mira crashing whenever fpic tried to load an image over about 100 kb. I didn’t get any response to that, but am working around it for now. I just had another problem happen several times and wonder if anyone has experienced this:
At times, a mira frame will stay [...]

the glorious/dreaded "lock to control surface" function

I was wondering everyones thoughts on using max msp or m4l to create a function where you could midi map the “lock to control surface” to a device instead of right clicking and selecting it.
This would be very useful for APC40 users who don’t neccesarily appreciate the way that Ableton behaves when a user selects [...]

Calculating forces to make phys bodies follow a Jit.path

Hi, as the title suggests I am trying to make phys.bodies loosely follow a path by calculating forces on them in relation to a path. I think what I am trying to do is similar to Day 6 of the physics patch-a-day.
In this patch I can see that a position and a path matrix [...]

MAX/MSP rewire with Logic Pro X

I am trying to record some MIDI in Logic using MAX/MSP to create it. I have no problem connecting Logic and Max, the signal comes into Logic and I can see it through different instruments. But when I am trying to record it, I can’t and I don’t know why.

Description doesn't seem to get copied

Trying to redesign some stuff and building it with Max 6. I noted that if I option-copy an object, the description from the original object doesn’t get copied. Is this a known issue?

how to [gate] a matrix?

i´d like to replace some of my older jitter “gates” abstractions with my regular messages gates abstractions, which means i am packing the incoming matrix with e.g. [prepend video] and then use different objects such as [gate] or [route] to switch output or to switch between different inputs to the abstraction, as opposed to utilizing [...]

'Spectral Blurring' – Live?

I recently came across ‘Play Blur’ by Jean-francois Charles.
Since the way it works is to record audio into a buffer and then manipulate it that way, I want to use it in a realtime setting. How would I do this? I’m a Max/MSP newbie. :)

Jitter – Keep movies playing when not viewed

I created patch where I can use a MIDI keyboard to cut between twelve different videos; however, every time I hit a note, each video starts back at the beginning instead of where I left off. Does anyone know if there’s a way I can keep all 12 videos playing in the background when they’re [...]
