Opendialog


    Dec 28 2007 | 4:05 pm
    Dear all, I'm looking for a (java?) external that let me to open a dialog and chose any wav / aiff / FLAC file on the hardisk. The "opendialog" object doesn't appear to be able to recognize Flac files.
    Does somebody know any external that do that?
    Many thanks, Bruno

      Maybe this could be fixed by adding the FLAC format to the max- fileformats.txt On the MAc you find it here: "/Applications/MaxMSP 4.6/Cycling'74/init/ max-fileformats.txt". Add this line "max fileformat .flac fLaC;"

      Oh thanks, your method seems to work properly also when I export the patch as standalone.
      Thank you very much Jakob.

      That's great! What external you use to play your flac files in MaxMSP, and what system you are on?

      I'm using an external that I wrote, it's for mac but I'll do the porting for windows in few weeks.
      If you are interested I can send you that part of code without problem.

      Hi Bruno
      Yes I would be very interested to try out the flac playing external. I'm on an intelmac.

      Oooh I am actually looking for that too. Could you please post the code on here when it's ready? I'd love to use it.
      Thanks!

      You were able to get the opendialog object to work with a specific file type? I haven't ever been able to get that feature to work. "opendialog WAVE", "opendialog maxb", etc all bring up a dialog that shows all file types.
      I'm on XP, though, so it might only be a Windows thing. Please let me know if you can get the same functionality when you port to Windows.

      As long its listed in max-fileformats.txt, I get it. You can also use the set message to set it explicitly... But I am on a Mac, there it will grey out all non-matching objects, but still list them...

      Dear all, I received some emails asking me the FLAC reader for MaxMSP.
      It is available for Mac UB and Windows since one year ago in my website http://www.brunozamborlin.com/maxmsp/
      Source code available on request.
      Best, Bruno

      Hi Bruno I wonder do you have any up to date links? I'd like to try your windows version.
