Can Stretta's _piezo.maxpat be used for Max 4 Live?

I have tried to get the _piezo.maxpat to work in Max 4 Live and so far cannot seem to make it work. Do I need full blown Max for this patch.

make sure that the analyzer~ external is in your searchpath. Do you have any errors in the max window? You might post the device…

analyzer~ is in Applications/Max5/Cycling ’74/msp-externals/
I try opening the patch from within Max-4-Live, then unlocking, copying all, and pasting into my Max Audio Patch.
Most of the time I get the spinning beach ball. Then I have to restart Live.
If I click on any tabs, they do not open in my Max Audio Effect window.
I think it might be due to the tabbed interface being too big for the M-4-L window?

OK – I can get the piezo patch to work in it’s own window now with MAX open and Live in background.
How do I get Live’s midi track assignments to appear in midi section drop-down menu?

I upgraded to MAX 6 with Gen. Still having problems, but now the problems seem to be all audio with this patch. It won’t seem to recognize my fw interface, even though Ableton Live does. Does not matter if Live is launched or not.

Get sound out, no sound in?

OK – I think I finally sorted the sound in issues. Using the metering patch I noticed my inputs were on 3 and 4, not 1 and 2.
I changed the DSP audio settings and now everything seems to be working! I can send the midi output to IAC bus now so Live can pick it up. The noteout object in MAX4Live does not have this extended feature.
