Exporting mp3 from MAX and emailing it

October 28, 2010 | 1:49 pm

Hello.

Im involved with a project that involves exporting an mp3 from a sequencer within MAX to then somehow providing the user with an interface to email the mp3 to themselves.

The MAX patch is built and works well, its the email part that is tricky.

From what I can gather, the easiest way to do this is exporting to flash and then using flash as the interface to email the user his/her creation.

Make sense?

Any suggestions welcome.

what about uploading the mp3 to a server from max and then have the person type their email address and max will send them a link to it. As far as making max write emails, maybe you could do it through the shell if you are on mac. I bet windows has some sort of email program in its shell too, no?

message to Max is a start:

;max launchbrowser mailto:name@host.com&subject="your mp3"&body="your message"

will launch the default email program. No idea about attachments though. There’s something in mxj which can do it, I believe…
