I'm trying to build a patch that uses my iPhone to control it and I don't know what to do with the downloaded file from the c74 site in order to do this. I'm a beginner with Max so please set your answers out in simple to understand terms!
Thanks for that. I'm using the c74 app and have just installed Max 6 demo. I was told that I also have to download another zip file from c74 in order to make the iPhone talk to the computer. I've downloaded it but I don't know where to put the files. How do I post my patch? Also, it's a patch I got from someone else that I plan to build on so I don't know if there would be any violation there?
@bkshepard I don't think c74 has been abandoned. And the app works fine here. External version 1.52 on the ipad 2.
Lemur is very cool because it works standalone. So it's kind of a different beast compared to c74, which I tend to see like a extension of Max.
I don't know the functionality of c74 but I found it trivial to setup a control surface in lemur that sent OSC to Max and I found it trivial to process that data with the CNMAT library. Very sweet.
From everything I've read, lemur blows touchosc out of the water, which of course it should, given the price differential.
C74 seems to require extra stuff running on your computer.
The only problem I would see with C74 is if you need a wireless internet connection while you're using it. I've never gotten it to be reliable over wifi, so I just create a network and all is peachy.
To answer the last question by the OP:
I keep all my externals in folder called "externals" within the max6 application folder. Then everything is placed neatly in max's search path. Otherwise just put it wherever you want and add it to the search path using file preferences in the options tab.
