Externals Strangeness

May 4, 2008 | 8:48 pm

Ive been loading some patches with externals that Ive put in the relative externals folders for Max 5, and my max window says the various objects are not available for Power PC,.
But Im running on a Macbook Pro, Intel core duo 2 processor…

I dont understand this, anyone know anything about this?

select the external you installed and get info on it. It will say if it’s Universal or PowerPC. If you can’t find a UB version, I think you might, but probably not, be able to use it in rosetta mode (PPC emulation).
Get info on the app to enable rosetta. I’m not in front of my mac, but I think rosetta’s still around.

If you tried all this, it was just my first guess…

Rosetta’s still around, but you could never mix & match PPC externals with Max running native on Intel. Never.

Once we got to Max 4.6 on Mac OS, you needed all your externals updated to UB.
