Can i access a buffer~ from a max external and do some manipulations on
it or do i have to build a MSP object ? I won’t have any use of signal
inlets/outlets and my object will not perform anything… Any advices ?

cheers

It can be done from a Max (non-MSP) object, but I wouldn’t do this.
Sooner or later you will be using soemthing like t_getbytes() which will
CRASH (in Runtime) when called from a non-MSP external. At least that’s
what happened with Max 4.3/4.5 and non-Mach-O externals.

So as a rule: when you need to include z_dsp.h to get something going,
make a real MSP external!
