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

      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
      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?

      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.
