Can someone help me turn this text file into a patcher?

December 2, 2011 | 12:53 pm

I found some code on a blogpost, but I’m unsure how to open it up in a patcher. Can someone please tell me what to do?

The code was posted by someone named Ludwig, towards the bottom of this page: http://digitaltools.node3000.com/download/33-korg-electribe-es-1-to-maxmsp-patch

Thanks in advance :]

On the same page you got that code it says:

To use it, simply copy the content of the .txt-file into the copy-buffer and select in maxMSP "open from clipboard". Done, that’s all. Download here.

Not once, but twice.

And in the forum sticky here:

http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=36405

It describes how to do this with patches you see on the forums.

Select the text, copy, open max and go to File> New From Clipboard…

I should have been more specific in my post… it was 5:30 am…

I have done this before, and just for the record, I did read where the poster gives instructions, and the forum sticky.

However, with the code I’m referring to, it is not working as expected. The code is provided in a response to the blogpost, not the code the author provides. It’s supposed to be an extended version of the author’s patch. After I copy the code from the message and select "New from clipboard", it doesn’t load a patcher. Instead, it just pastes into a txt file.

I’m thinking there may be something missing in his post, something that may be easily spotted to the trained eye. Either that or I’m doing something wrong in this instance, over and over.

If you have a moment, please give it a try and let me know if you have any luck. I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

You may need to add the "beginMax5Patcher" lines at the beginning and end? not totally sure…looks like the pasted patch (non-compressed as well) doesn’t have the whole thing in there. Note too the .js file towards the end.

Maybe ask the poster to put up the .maxpat as an attachment, that would solve it.
