I've been meaning to get my teeth into Max for ages and I've finally got around to starting the tutorials.
Obviously, I'm blown away by the potential, but I've got a wee bit stuck.
I'm trying to add a "+" object to my patch, to transpose some midi (just adding a number of semitones depending on the position of a slider). It's a dead simple patch and I've got it working without trouble by modifying the "simple math in max" tutorial patch.
If I start fresh though, I have trouble creating the "+" object. I make the other objects by double clicking in the unlocked canvas and typing the first few letters of the object name then hitting return (with palette tab on "all").
If I press + on my keyboard though, I can't get any of the math function objects.
I'm sure this is uber uber simple and that I've missed something here, but I figured I'll end up hanging around here a fair bit and asking a lot of questions, so what better way to dip my toe in the water?
