it’s a work-around but it does work.

first install skype. write the following apple-script

tell application “Skype”
send command “CALL ” script name

end tell

save this script as application.

now from max you use the external [shell] and you launch skype as a
unix path from max. give it a little time to sign-in. and then launch
the apple-script application and skype will call your cell.

cheers,

Piet

the current version of Skype for OSX is 2.7

http://www.skype.com/intl/en/download/skype/macosx/

there are other voip clients for OSX like X-Lite or Eyebeam by
Counterpath (SIP-protocol) but they don’t offer AppleScript access to
their API. I haven’t tried Asterisk.

Cheers,
Piet

hi adrien,
I’ve previously got max to make phone calls via my mobile phone.

It required establishing a bluetooth connection to the mobile, and then
using a serial port connection from Max to the phone – I needed to run a
serial port interface program specific to my phone (SonyEricsson K750i).

Dialing required working out the appropriate ATD commands to send across the
serial link to the phone – this was painful, but I got it to work.

The application was a performance piece were I was remixing people’s
ringtone’s live – so I set up a system whereby they entered their phone
number and placed their phone underneath a mic, and then max could call the
phone and record their ringtone so I could start remixing it – all a bit of
overkill in the end, but it was fun, and I figure I might use that trick
again sometime.

Sending audio to the phone is not possible over the serial link – but once
you’ve dialed you could just dac~ to a speaker sitting next to the phone -
the old fashioned way :-)

With the right phone I believe sending SMS might also work, but there are
internet gateways for that which might be easier to use.

Hope these suggestions help.

regards,

mark

typo in the script, sorry

tell application “Skype”
send command “CALL [your cell number with countrycode]” script name
“[anything you like]“
end tell

cheers

when you install 4.6 on a PPC machine, during the installation
process you have a dialog to install optional CFM support, but almost
all of the older externals are ported to UB by now.
