Hallo people at Max forum.

I´m trying to understand this giant program, and I trying to get some motivation for getting further in the LONG leaning curve.

The motivation will be just to get the ag.granular.suite up and running.

Have seen the video lots of times, but where the movie starts im already lost.

Is there a question here…?

The question here is-

How do you get them tools inside max.
I can only get one tool in pair patch.
So I can try it out..

The download for the suite is here:

Note that it’s OS X only.

Other than that I can’t really understand what you’re asking.

It is probably my lack of knowledge in msp.

But in the video when he starts it up it look like this _
But when I start the ag granular it look like this-

I don’t know the patch you’re working on but according to your screen-shots it seems like you need to toggle your patch in presentation mode.

Don’t give up with Max but take some time to learn it. Watch all the videos on this site, read the tutorials or better read these books : one from Giri and the other from Manzo.

Hope this helps.

didn’t try it for now, but it seems you need the FTM library from the IRCAM, as well as a Jamoma one, which i don’t know. What does your Max window say ? if it’s full of "can’t find…" lines you probably don’t have installed those libraries. It could explain the lack of things.

After trying, and opening the same patch as yours, i can confirm that your problem is that your miss the Jamoma, at least, and Ftm libraries.

Install IRCAM Ftm from

Then, find the Jamoma at
