Sending Max a Key/Modifier while in the background


    Sep 10 2008 | 9:26 pm
    Can anyone think of a way to send a max-built application a key or modifier, while it's not the frontmost application? Basically I'd like my Max application to recognize whenever the Shift key is pressed, even while in the background.

      Hi,
      I have just tried the CNMAT Spectral Synthesis Tutorials for the
      first time in max 5. Somehow using this patch I get two different
      results in max 5 and 4. In max 5 the synthesis is somehow not very
      smooth, as if the line object is not outputting a smooth ramp. Do I
      need to change something to get the same resolution in max 5? or is
      this a bug related to the externals in max 5? My SDIF file has under
      10 partials in it so I can't see how it's related to memory alocation
      or anything like that.
      I'm on osx 10.4.11 UB.
      Many Thanks in advance
      Peiman
