Need Help installing Ms Pinky on win7 Max 5...

Postby scratchtest » Thu Jul 12, 2012 7:55 am

Hi There!

Just got the vinyls and software. (fast shipping btw thanks! )

I got Ms pinky to work but not 100%
I really am a noob sorry :p

My configuration is :

Sony Vaio VPCEC1M1E
Windows 7
Audio 8 DJ
Numark TTX
Novation Launchpad
Denon DN-x120 mixer

Ableton live 8.2.2
Max 5 for live 5.1.0

I followed this topic:
Installing Ms Pinky's Patches and Externals

but seems that it's for Mac and for Max 4 live ?

I copied max-externals inside folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Cycling '74\Max 5.0\Cycling '74\max externals\
I copied msp-externals inside folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Cycling '74\Max 5.0\Cycling '74\msp-externals\
I copied Pathces inside folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Cycling '74\Max 5.0\patches\

I copied MsPinky_M4L_AudioFX.amxd to C:\Users\N\Documents\Ableton\Library\Presets\Audio Effects\Max Audio Effect\

Do i need to copy other files?

When i launch Ableton, Ms pinky is found in Audio effects.

Ms pinky works well when i drag and drop a mp3 from windows explorer.
It doesn't when i click on a clip or when i select the scene with the drop down menu.
Auto load selected clip is highlighted.

I tried to edit the preferences to add a sound path in file preferences,
-but maxsmp crashes when launched from MsPinky_M4L_AudioFX
-when launched from another patch it doesn't crash, i can add the path but can't save it ( save buttons are greyed)

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

You need the full application of max msp to edit patches I believe. Try running max in standalone. If no go maybe there is a preferences file in max's program folder you can edit in notepad to add folders, I'd contact max support if that's the case.
