Max Communicating with pd?

    Hello everyone,
    Is it possible to make max/msp talk to pure data?
    Any suggestions welcome
    Thanks in advance

      I used to use netsend and netreceive, OSC works as well.

      OSC is working for me. But I have one problem. I can seem to send float numbers across the network. EG a float number from pd controlling a slider in Max.
      Is there a solution to this?

      can you post an example patch?

      Here are two patches that communicate with each other. Sending float numbers does not work but sending a multiple and dividing once acquired in the opposing program works fine.

      Sending numbers from pd to Max is proving more tricky..

      It's a pretty straightforward thing. You'll need to download the OpenSoundControl objects for Max from here : and I'd recommend Hans Steiner's PD-extended build from here :
      pd patch
      and the Max patch
