I did write an applescript, saved it on the hard drive and then was able (woohoo!!) to execute it from Max. I read in the file, sent it to tap.applescript and then triggered it with a midi note. The applescript was the standard "display dialog ‘Hello World’". Hello World popped up on my screen and then….. when I clicked OK…… MAX crashed, shutting down the window and then displayed an error message.
If I try using:
script display dialog ‘Hello World’ and then send it to Max nothing happens. script beep 1 works really well.
I have a script now written that is run from MAX controlling DP Digital Performer) so that I can jump from one marker to any other marker using tap.applescript. Best thing of all, MAX hasn’t crashed yet!! So, I’m happy at this point!
Thanks to Tim and everyone else for your ideas and help.
