Thank you very much for the link to the beautiful live.
You should better take a look at this page if you want to create the kind of drones. It's a great tutorial for Max/MSP, it helped me a lot to find how to make beautiful drones.
The main idea to create drones like this is to use a lot of delays with a lot of feedback.
You send sounds with smooth long attack, then you'll get a continuous sound. Granulation with a lot of voices and long grains can work similarly as a delay

The track Toulouse 01 Octobre uses a combination of delay and granulation with a lot of feedback between every modules.
Feedback is the key to get beautiful long auto-moving sounds.
Peace and Drones is a great road to Happiness.
Thank you Bertrand, as you understood me right I want to create such kinds of drones yes.
I read the tutorial and it's very interesting but not easy to understand because I'm newbie with Max/Msp and didn't create patches by myself yet, though I will. I listened to your music and I like it very much.
Can you please share your any patch with such parameters for long auto-moving drones? It would be more easier to understand all the scheme.
Thank you, you're right Bertrand
It would be much better to understand MAX learning it by myself, although I have some questions.
I don't have a guitar and I'm going to use the samples as input for such drones, I talked with my friend and he told me that I can try NI Kontakt (as sampler) through Rewire to MAX instead of creating Sampler in MAX and I believed that it's a good idea till my Lap and Max currently decided not to work together (well, maybe I'll get any help https://cycling74.com/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=34538&start=0&rid=6983&S=6ad4603dbad9fbdd7d98086e02d95d92)
So, I continued experimenting with MAX and loaded sfplay~ and then connected it to delay~ and nothing happens, I hear just clear sound without any delay. What I do wrong? I didn't find any information concerning this in tutorial and would be much appreciated for your help.
So, I learned Max tutorials and created patch which you can see here http://i33.tinypic.com/i2lrfa.jpg as well I used all numbers which was used by Keith. I hear my sound, hear how delays occurs, but it sounds like "bum... (about 20sec)...bum", hm, what I did wrong again?

According to your patch, that's what you should expect. What's wrong
Why don't you use a single tapin~/tapout~??? That patch doesn't make
much sense to me...
(You can have multiple taps in a single tapout~ by the way...;-)
jonathan segel and Kyred, Oh! thank you so much!
For best result we have to use in this patch veeery looong samples, right? (or live guitar f.e.) because if not, it sounds not so nice as in video due to my short sample of banjo which was used in my patch.
