I like the idea. You program a nice patcher using the presentation mode, then you program a script to scramble everything for the non-presentation mode.

It would be quite easy to unscramble the patch cords.

Hello maxers,

"It would be quite easy to unscramble the patch cords."

Yes, but you can make a "shaker" external (with a secret name … hide in the patch …) and scramble again each time you swap in edit mode ! Yes, but bad boys could delete the external file … oops … Yes, but etc … ;-)

AppProtect or QuickLicense can be used to protect/license/activate both Mac and Windows applications created with Max5. See http://www.excelsoftware.com/softwarelicensemanagement.html

The problem with the ‘scramble’ scripting thing is that it utterly ruins order of operations – and there are many many instances where getting the order of operations correct is important (animating an LCD, for instance).

Oh, i totally forgot that !
I’ve used pd before max and I took over the habit of using [trigger], whenever the order of execution is important…

@mudang: you should use [trigger] in Max, too.

Why not simply patches to share??
