Here’s a real beginner’s question. How can I reference files in Max (both audio and video), so that they can be played back instantly when a patch is loaded? I’ve searched for some time but didn’t find it, and I suppose this should be quite simple.
You can refer to them by their complete path anywhere on your computer. If you leave this path in a [message] object and use [loadbang] (or even [loadmess]) to trigger it when your patch loads it should work.
On a sidenote a quick way to grab the path is to hook [dropfile] up to a [message] box and throw your file at it.
