      [pitch~] or [fiddle~] these are third party pitch tracking objects. Connected to [mtof].

      hi,
      there was a problem with the mac-os update since 10.4.6.
      try (re-)installing the combo-update for 10.4.7 (from apples download- side). for mis this fixed the problems with 10.4.6 and missing libraries.
      hope this helps hans

      Hi,
      It does not solve the problem... do i re-install MaxMSP ?
      Thanks

      Right solution wrong problem. That one was "can't fragload... "
      Can't fragload... (read the full error message) is indicative of trying to load an external built for Max/MSP 4.1 or earlier.
      Claude: vous avez besoin de la version de pitch~ pour OS X.

      any chance you installed the os 9 version by mistake? this fragload-thing pops up a lot when trying to use older externals on os x. (try a forum search on that, you will see...) or you may have a double lying around somewhere?

      Bonsoir,
      i found the problem... I had put pitch~ in the external folder. To make it works, I have to put it into Max-Startup folder.
      Thanks for your help...

      I doubt it, but the startup folder is loaded before the rest of the search path. If pitch~ is coming as OS 9 and OS X in the same package, and both versions are in the search path, it could load the OS 9 version first and ignore the correct one...

      Hi Peter,
      It may be true, before putting pitch in the startup folfer, i removed it from the external.
      Thanks
