beat~ or any other beat tracker?

April 27, 2010 | 9:30 am

Can anyone tell me why I can’t get this patch by Tristan Jehan to work?

It keeps crashing when I use mic input or load a wave file :(

Any other ideas on where to find beat trackers?

You didn’t include the patch, and you haven’t told us the first thing about the machine/OS version you’re running on, the version of Max you’re running, and the basic things that any basic bug report would require. I think you’ll have a better chance of getting a good answer if you provide those basics.

Sure, no problem.

The patch is this: http://web.media.mit.edu/~tristan/MaxMSP/OSXBeat%7E.zip

I am on a MBP C2D 2.2 gHz running OS 10.6.3. Max is 5.1.4.

Anyone have an idea why it isn’t working?

Neither option crashes for me. MBP 2.8 gHz running 10.6.3, Max 5.1.4.

Got a sequence of actions that reliably crashes?

It crashes when it’s been running for a few seconds (I have only tried the help-patch, did you try that one or did you just use the object?)….

Anyway, I found another beattracker that works great: http://www.elec.qmul.ac.uk/digitalmusic/people/adams/bsa/

I seem to remember this working well at some point:

Also, remember http://www.maxobjects.com when looking for an object or patch to do something.
