i've combed the forum for this but just came across suggestions for plug-ins and automated patches such as spat~ which i'm not interested in using. In ways i'm a control freak, hence the appeal of Max...anyway, the closest thing i found to what i am looking for is a patch made by Eav 6 years ago, which utilizes an external that is no longer available
but i will post their patch here for a better example of what i'm attempting to do:
any help or pointing in a direction would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
