Problem with Freezing


    Oct 13 2021 | 2:05 am
    I have a patcher that I am attempting to make available for distribution. It consists of a `poly~` object that refers to a separate file (maxpat). According to what I see at maxforlive.com, it says that I need to freeze the device. However, the snowflake icon is grayed out.
    I have tried to do File -> Build Collective / Application, however, it doesn't match what the documentation shows, specifically, it only wants a file name. When I give it a file name, it creates `xxx.amxd.mxf`, which is not able to be imported into Ableton Live.
    Can someone explain how I can have an Ableton-ready file that contains the sub patcher that I am loading in the poly~?

      OK, I figured out how this can be done, not sure if this is the approved way, but I went into my main patcher and chose "Save as project". The project window opens, showing all the dependencies, including my sub-patcher. From the project window, I chose "File -> Export Max for Live device". The resulting `.amxd` file can then be loaded into Live and it includes the sub patcher.
      Maybe this will help someone with a similar problem.
