Can't get patches to run…

Nov 25 2006 | 12:58 am


I have a concert tomorrow and have had to change computers last minute. I’m now using a Macbook Pro (was using a Macbook before but it kept cutting out).

When I open the patches (.pat and .mxb), nothing happens. I just get a blank screen.

Can anyone advise on what I need to do for anything to happen?

Thanks very much…

The problem was two-fold. First I opened the files from the original download…somehow the tranfer must have corrupted them. Secondly, I had not installed jitter, having not realised these patches depended on it.

Thanks again for the help – the concerts are in Dublin (Ireland) tommorrow:
