Object-Specific Changes

This is a list, sorted alphabetically, of discontinued objects, or changes to object features or messages in Max 6.


The jit.cellblock object no longer supports the read or write messages. Saving and restoring contents should be done by using the refer message to attach to a coll object, which can be saved or restored.

Due to changes in the underlying technology, all rows in a jit.cellblock object must be the same height, so setting a single row's height using the row n height n message is no longer supported, and the message is ignored.


The vst~ object will not open VST plug-ins created with Max. As an alternative, you could change your plug-in to an abstraction and load it with the poly~ object, which supports dynamic patcher loading.
