    I just downloaded the updated Vsynth package and I can't find a way to unlock the accompanying help patches. I don't have much experience with Max externals so maybe I'm overlooking something obvious ...
    Any help would be appreciated!

      Those patches aren't meant to be unlockable. Instead of copy pasting I recommend patching from scratch. Cheers!

      Hi Kevin,
      Thank you for sharing your work! It's a fantastic resource.
      Out of curiosity, is that "level" of patch locking a native feature of Max's exporting utilities?

      You can make any patch to behave like that by sending a "lockdown" message to the [thispatcher] object.

      Max patches are actually plain text. open that patch in Max using "Open As Text...", Find ... replace "lockdown" with whatever else like "lock-down", and save it.
