Microtuning Max/MSP synths: how to load tuning files?

I’d like to create a specific control patch for loading microtuning files, something like a control panel from which I can load Scala tuning files into my MSP synths using pushbuttons; I’d also like to use a MIDI pedal controller to load tuning files on the fly while playing. But my main problem is the file management part as it looks like I cannot achieve that with Max.

Also have a look at the attached sample patches making use of the Microtuner object. I downloaded them from http://mathmusic199.blogspot.com/ – hope it helps.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for a Max Microtuner instructional vid? In particular how to set it up for multimode and assign a different tuning scale per MIDI channel. Need that for a presentation, thanks.

Not really an instructional video, btw there’s one here (by ZIA’s Elaine Walker):
