How to delete "text " that is prepended to output of textedit object?

I believe what I want to do is quite simple:
Use the output of a textedit object, but delete the “text” and the space (” “) that seem to be prepended in front of whatever you type into the textedit object.
However I don’t seem to be able to figure out what objects or settings to use [...]

Is there any way to record/export video on Windows?

I am making video with jit.noise and other effect objects and I want to export it. But, to my surprise, I’ve realized that jit.qt.record doesn’t work. The Max window tells that it isn’t supported on x64. I imagine it isn’t supported on any windows. So how can I record/export that video?

there must be a simpler way than this haha

M4L – Saving edited device on one track resets the same device on another track

Hello. I’m recently returning to using Max/MSP (using Max For Live) after putting it away for a few years. One thing that is exciting to me is being able to run the same device in multiple tracks at the same time.
One thing I’m noticing though is that if I have the same device in [...]

Anyone here work as an Interaction Designer?

If so does your Max/MSP experience at all contribute to that role? I’m under the impression that “interaction designer” can be a vague title entirely depending on the company. However I’m curious about whether I should steer myself in that direction.

1080p alpha channel video playback – dramatic frame rate drop

Live.dial reacts oddly to Push's encoders

When using Push’s encoders to control Max for Live, i’ve noticed the way they control live.dial isn’t the same as the way Live’s own dials respond.
Live.dial seems to move further when you turn Push’s encoders slowly, and changes less if you move the encoders fast. This means that returning an encoder to the position you [...]

Hi all,
I just upgraded from Max 6.1.4 to 6.1.6, and discovered that my looper patches do not work alright anymore. In fact, when using poke and index simultaneously on the same buffer, poke doesn’t seem to write all samples.
Please have a look at the patcher below. The left channel plays back the input, the right [...]
