Author 5 Subscribed Users |

When I open the externals tab of preferences it says that both the microplayer and multiplayer are not found. How do I correct this?

Thank you for your time and consideration.

All best,

you can find them here :

At the bottom of the page

But multiplayer needs an special activation that Karim can send to you, if you’re a good boy 😉

Hi Ben,

These two players are unsupported because they are not maintained anymore. However concerning the multiplayer please check this thread :

Hi all,
I have a question for you: does anybody there at IRCAM have run the MicroPlayer with El Capitan? Even if it’s unsupported, I’d still like to know if there’s a workaround that someone found to get it working with the most recent Mac OS.

Hello Francesco,

I shared the link to r-udp-player some time ago:
Like microplayer, it is created from Max patches, with an app built on Yosemite in my case. The problem is that this app will probably not work on all newer systems, while the Max patches will. That’s one reason why I also included all the patches. If the max patches of Microplayer were available, I would try this. Instead I made a new similar program. With the fluidsynth externals properly installed you should be able to run the patch if you have Max 7 and save an app for your system, or just let it play from Max.
