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.

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

"[anything you like]"
end tell

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.
