Sharing Max Patchers

Sharing Max Patchers

You've finally finished it: the perfect Max patch. Now it's time to share it with the world. For people who have Max, you can send them an entire Max patch as a block of compressed text using the Copy Compressed command. It's also possible to share a working Max patch with people who don't have Max by using Collectives or Standalone Applications. Of course, maybe you've built an entire library of Max patches for sharing and reuse. In that case, check out abstractions, externals and packages.
