Patch works in MAX but not M4L. Problem with Abstractions?


I am converting my max patches to M4L ones, and have hit a snag with one of them. It plays in MAX, when I open it up to edit it, but not with M4L. I have done the obvious things of using the plug out instead of dac.

I have a feeling that it may be to do with the abstraction, ‘voice’ I have put it in the same folder as the M4L patch, do I need to convert it to an amxd as well? It does show up as working.

I have copied it in MAX form at the end of this post and attached the M4L version.

Many thanks for any help

Actually here is the M4L folder it’s in, so you can see the abstractions.

I think it might be a problem with the object ‘route’ I put it in presentation mode and it went a darker color, ie – not working or recognised. Any Ideas?

a few ideas:
- use “—” for the send/receive objects
- use “route” not “Route”
- make sure you have the externals (e.g.”cpPan~” , “freeverb~” etc. ) in your searchpath…
- use live.thisdevice instead of loadbang

Thanks Kleine, it came down to bad admin. *own face slapped*
