question about external objects

Hi everyone,

I have a stupid question. I downloaded some external objects, but they only got .maxhelp .c files, no .maxpat file.

How can I use those objects then?

By the way, I’m doing something need peak extraction in frequency domain. Can anybody help with that? Really appreciate!!!

If you don’t have an mxo file, then you dont have the external :o)
Sounds like you have the source code (.c files) for an external, in which case you need to build it using a compiler and using the max/msp sdk.

If you are not a developer – you really need to look for a prebuilt version of the external with a sample patch file, or be prepared to spend quite some time learning about the SDK and how to build externals.
