Application Building

Hi Everyone,

Im probably doing something really stupid here but its had me up all night!!

When I build my max msp patch as an application it doesnt work. The patch looks fine and all the buttons work etc just no sound. Ive tried building it as a collective and this works fine.

Do I need to include every subpatch and external in the build? I have tried this but may have missed something out.

Im definitely doing something stupid though because i tried to build an application using only cycle~, gain~ and a DAC~ and this didnt work either!!

Ive been using max for a while but iv never actually built a stand-alone application just patches etc.

Thanks for any help.

With sound, do you meam the sound output or you mean soundfiles are missing?
All your patches should be in 1 folder. If not, do that and make sure that everything works as a patch. Then it should work normally

I always drop an [adstatus driver] object in standalones so you can select the right driver. Sometimes it could be set to “none” …

Thanks to both of you.

I meant sound as in output but i dropped an adstatus driver in and the driver was set to none!

good thinking AutisteRaideDingue.
