How do you install the CNMAT ojectes for Macs

I download everyting Pkgs
could not fin online info or a readme file in how to install this objects
do they go all in one folder inside max or they go indiferent folders according to file extension

Either way is fine as long as the folder(s) they end up in are in one of the Max search paths (set in Options/File Preferences). Sorting the respective file types to their “proper” locations is tedious if there is no installer , so In that case, I move it all into a folder of Max downloads that is included in Max’s file path preferences.

Hi balam,

I just did this tonight on a couple machines. It’s a bit confusing. There is a readme file in there that has instructions on where to put the .class files, somewhere under java I think. Look at the file. I put all the max patches in the max-externals, help files in the help folder etc. It all seems to be working fine for me. With that said I like spectro’s idea. I’m going to do that in the future instead. Sorting all these files to the proper place is frustrating. Somebody build an installer please! :-)

You don’t have to sort files to anyplace. Stick the whole folder in your search path someplace. Look in the documentation for “file preferences” to get more information about that.
