I have a patch, called ScaleMaster, which does all sorts of note quantizing. It’s a fairly big and complicated system, but it’s quite comprehensive.
It can be found here: http://xfade.com/max/

coll and/or table is the way to go
have a look at Chris’ ScaleMaster, it is pretty awesome

[expr ($i1*12+$i2)/7+$i3] will map chromatic MIDI values ($i1) to a diatonic scale. Use $i2 to select a different church mode (0->Lochrian, 1->Lydian, 2->Aeolian, etc). $i3 transposes.

I always thought that was cute.

What a coincidence — I had to hack something up this morning so put together a simple object that lets you connect a coll separately and you define your intervals in the col.
It’s designed so that note 60 is ALWAYS note 60 for my purposes.

and here’s an example of using it

There are also objects from VJ Manzo that can help for that matter. That and coll and modulo…

I like [matrixctrl] because you can make your scales easily and use [preset] to store:
