i've slowly been porting some of my max patches into m4l
however, at some stage the situation has arisen whereby my M4L vanilla (starting point) patch has acquired audio plugin genes and no matter what i put in there (or can see from the patcher inspector) it loads as an audio (ie post-instrument effect) - even when there is *nothing* in the patcher !!
the storage location does not come into this
even copying the contents of a midi tutorial patcher into the empty patcher makes no difference
i also now have a midi gene patch (deliberately started from a max midi effect)
Q) How does one tell / alter the underlying mode ? I can't see anything
