M4L patch will not load and freezes live. HELPPP!!!!

April 6, 2010 | 6:04 am

I’ve been working for the past two days on an patch to control Live via TouchOSC directly… the details of that are unimportant…

My problem is that now when I try to load the device it freezes live. Because it’s in .amxd format, there is now no way for me to open it to fix the problem. I think it’s being caused by a loadmess or loadbang…

IS THERE some way to get the patch open or am I screwed? So many hours of work over the last two days…

Make a backup of your device.

Open the device as text in a text editor,

Select and copy all from the first { on the first line to the last } down at the bottom.

Open Max, or open the MFL editor.

Create a new blank patcher. Paste the clipboard into it.

Save as a Max patcher. This should give you the code, now you have to figure out what you did wrong and get it back into an MFL device

That worked perfectly. Thank you so much! I took the loadbangs out and now it is working fine. Beautiful!
