How to create Live Max instrument from existing Max patch?

Dec 11 2010 | 3:48 pm

I’m stuck and I bet this is a simple thing for you. How do I create a Live Max instrument from a Max patch?

I created a new Live Max instrument however I can’t figure out how to "cut and paste" the existing Max patch into it.

I appreciate your assistance!

Hard to say since it heavily depends on the patch.

First you need to pay close attention to the ’empty’ instrument patch; this will give you a good insight as to what objects M4L uses for incoming midi and outgoing audio.

You will most likely need to ‘port’ the patch and replace objects with a M4L counterpart. So stuff like ezdac~ and dac~ which aren’t usable in M4L.

Well, I figured out how to pull in an existing patch that was specifically written for M4L. Does anyone know where I may find a cheatsheet that specifically speaks to the probable alterations necessary to move a max patch into an M4L patch?
