imorting dll's in max


    Apr 10 2007 | 7:37 pm
    Hi!
    How can I communicate / load dll files into max? I have no idea... :-) Is this possible at all?
    Thanx

      what sort of dll would one need to load? library dlls are placed in the maxmsp folder, if that helps.

      You would have to write your own external, that would load a dll and execute functions in it.

      Hi Gerald,
      As far as I know, you would need to write a wrapper for the library as an external.

      Hi,
      yes I'm a Windows user, but I'm not interested to use VST-plugins! I want to use the interface of the dll to control an external hardware via USB. So my question was, how to call the "routines" defined in this dll...?

      yeah but they all misunderstood the question by will because it is more fun that way.

      oh lol i should have finished reading the story to its end.
      dll libraries can not be "loaded" with max unless you use them in an [mxj] maybe.

      btw there are some max objects which accesses a third party device driver such as usb game controllers or the firewire interface for kyma in the way you describe.
      it is probably very simple and requires you to look into the MAXMSP SDK and the description of the driver you want to connect to - if the description it is available.

      Even then you'd need to make a C wrapper, so you may as well make an external instead.
