So it appears that sooner rather than later, Apple is going to force me to shift to 64bit Max. (I know, I could not upgrade, but from time to time I create permanent installations that will inevitably be on new Macs, which will come with the most recent OS and so won't allow the 32bit option).
I've been through my main patcher, and it looks like most of the 3POs I use now have 64bit versions, which is great. However, there is one object and one set of objects that I can't find info on, so I'm hoping someone here might know.
1. Litter Power. It doesn't look as though the site has been updated in a while. Does anyone know if Peter is going to be updating these?
2. More critically - fluidsynth~ . Was being handled by Ircam, but again, no sign of recent updates. Anyone have any info, or alternatives? (ie a lightweight source of a general midi soundset, that integrates very easily into Max (on Mac). I've tried some vst~ sample players before now, but none of them have played well with voice/bank recall using midi messages). The other option would be to build a simple sample player, but I don't know if I can load or convert fluidsynth files to a useable format???
