patcher from max6 to max5

For a project i have to move to max5.

I have this patch where i can drop a folder with mp3 / wave to create messages of them which i can use with my iphone. In max6 it works fine, in max5 no messages are created. I have no clue what it can be. The only thing i changed is [join] to [zl join] but this can’t be it.

In Max, known file types are defined in a file called max-fileformats.txt which resides in the Cycling’74/init/ folder.

In Max6, the Mp3 file type has finally been defined, but in Max5 it was not. You can add a line like this one by yourself and restart Max5:

max fileformat .mp3 “Mp3 ” 0 “MP3 audio file” audiofile;

(note the space in the quotes).
