CNMAT externals not being found

June 19, 2013 | 8:46 am

I just tried to install the CNMAT externals but Max isn’t finding the objects. It is in a file path which is in the Max5 file paths, and I have ‘subfolders’ checked. The external objects such as OSC-Route are not found. Any ideas? I’ve been using Max for a while and have never had problems with it finding externals before. I’m on OSX 10.6.8

You can get the functionality of OSC-Route with standard Max objects, in particular using ‘regexp’ to replace slashes by spaces, ie. [regexp / @substitute " "]. There are some related threads on the forum.

Thanks, that’s useful to know, i’ll probably go that route instead.

Although, I would still like to know why these externals are not registering…

yes, it’s a bit odd. Did you try double clicking objects/patchers in the package ? also, did you check the objects are not currently compiled for max 6 only ? in that case, you should download a slightly earlier version of the package.

I’m going to mention it here in case someone else gets to this thread by web search: CNMAT silently stopped supporting several objects a few revisions ago. As it says on the downloads page:

Please note that analyzer~, pitch~, loudness~, and brightness~ have been intentionally left out of this release. They will reappear in a subsequent release.

This not is itself out of date. The combination object analyzer~ seems to be back (haven’t done a thorough check of functionality yet) although you’d obviously have to rewrite some patches to use it.

In anycase, if you are missing pitch~, loudness~ etc, now you know.

Sorry to revive an old thread again, but after updating my CNMAT externals, I am now having them not show up either. As far as I can see though, it’s to do with the objects showing up as folders, as opposed to bundles:

Vade’s post (and David Butler’s comment), here:

…has fixed it for me.
