Hey, i’ve got a patch in which i want to have stored melodies each consisting of 16 notes. I want these notes to be played by connecting a metro to a [next] message. Currently ive been recording melodies into a [mtr] object, and this works great but when i close max, the recorded melody is lost. Can i save a [mtr] MIDI file?
I know you can save a [seq] MIDI file, but [seq] does not understand the [next] command. Is there any way i can have a [seq] MIDI file saved and have it load its contents into a [mtr] object when max opens?
I read in the max reference manual about [mtr]:
In left inlet: Calls up the standard Save As dialog box, allowing the contents of mtr to be saved as a separate file. Note that the only way to save the contents of mtr is with the write message; the object’s contents cannot be embedded in a patcher file.
do you try this?
Ah of course! Thanks so much. Id read that reference page so many times, but for some reason never took that it. It was 4am mind you. I can loadbang a message like [read melody1] and it will automatically load in melody1, without bringing up an "open" box. Great success!
