any reason to use live.thisdevice instead of loadmess/loadbang?

is there any reason to use live.thisdevice instead of loadmess/loadbang for initializing?

thanks

yes. huge reasons.

(it gives you a bang out left guaranteed to be the final bang on loadup. loadbang/mess etc cannot offer this certainty. this drastically improves organising and initialising your devices. including anything in the api. in fact before 5.1.8 (when it was introduced) it was almost impossible to reliably init devices.

only use one.)
