[mtof] missing.

March 22, 2007 | 11:22 am

Hi all,

I just noticed that my installation of maxmsp is missing the [mtof]
object. It’s strange, because, as far as I can tell it is the only
object that’s missing… strange. Has anyone else seen this? Apart from
this everything is working fine, and I have the ejies, which has a java
version of mtof in it, so there’s no real problem. I’m just wondering,
really.

WinXP, 4.6.2, jitter 1.6.3b2, latest java.
Andreas.

If you install the ejies correctly (as described in the read-me
file), everything should be fine. Make sure the java classes are in
the C74/java/classes/ej/ folder.

Hi,
I think you misunderstood my request: The ejies work (and thank you very
much, esp. for ej.lscale!!!)
The standard max-object MTOF does not work, however. I’ve since done a
full search, and found mtof.mxe… right where it should be: C:Program
FilesCycling ’74MaxMSP 4.6Cycling ’74externals

I’ve manually added the search path into max, but to no avail. I’ve also
searched for abstractions erroneously named mtof, and found nothing, either.

I’m not sure. does the normal mtof, ftom and urn objects work? If not
this might be because there’s in my ejies a mtof, ftom and urn java
classes (part of the ej package). So if the java classes are not in
the correct folder (c74:/java/classes/ej/), it might be the problem.

Cheers,
ej

Its not missing, its a name clash between the java version and the
external. If max finds the java version before the external it won’t load…

Thank you Stefan, but that is naturally the first thing I checked.
Anyway, since the class is from the ejies, it’s of course called
ej.mtof, so it’s not a name clash. I’ve also done a full computer scan
and found only one file called "mtof" – the one in the externals folder
that is supposed to be working but isn’t ;)

I’m the author of the ejies, and I tell you "put the ejies to the
trash", I won’t feel offended or something for now ;-) Then restart
max. Could you confirm the mtof still doesn’t work? If it works,
download the ejies, use the installation.command and that’s it!

Thanks.

:-D
AHA! I had this preconception in my head that if I had to enter [mxj
ej.mtof] then the file associated with it would of course not be named
so. Strangely, the java class "mtof.class" didn’t even show up in the
searches…. yet it was clearly right there in your folder, Emmanuel! DOH!

I apologize deeply for being so thick-headed! All is well here – now I
just have to teach myself not to start debugging the system when
deadlines are looming… No good shall come from this.

Thanks!
Andreas.

You also reinstalled the ejies, didn’t you? Otherwise, I’ll feel
really sad this time ;-)

Cheers,

Of course! …. after the deadline! Right now, as long as ej.lscale
works then my projects work – that’s all that matters for the next two
weeks.

Andreas :-D
