It's been said that Max patching is 50% perspiration, 50% remembering how the objects work. Snippets provide a way to store a small chunk of objects that you frequently use together, so you can quickly paste them into a patch without having to recall exactly how they fit together. To save a snippet, just right-click on a group of selected objects and click Save Snippet in the context menu. Here you'll be given a chance to add a title, tags and description to your snippet so it will be easier to find later. Once saved, you'll be able to browse for your snippet by clicking the Snippet button in the patcher frame.
