choosing an audiodriver in a standalone app(vs5)

June 11, 2008 | 1:22 pm

I’ve made an app for someone else who is using different hardware, so
he needs to choose the proper driver for his setup.

When I doubleclick the dac~ object in the standalone to bring up the
DSP Status window, it looks funny and there’s no way to choose anything.

How is one to supposed to deal with standalones & choosing a
CoreAudio driver?

Thanks for any insights/tips/pages in the manual.

Best,

Zip

Hm. I get a whole slew of missing objects errors when I hit dac~ in
the standalone. Basically, it looks like all the components of the
DSP Status are missing. Is there an easy way to include these?

Best,

Zip

Can’t you just use ‘include patcher’ in the collective
building script to include the DSP Staus patch ? It’s
at ~Max5/Cycling ’74/interfaces/DSP Status.maxpat
I’m sure I’ve done this in the distant past,
cheers

Hi Roger,

Thanks for your prompt reply. Do you mean ‘Include File…’ from the
build script window? I just tried that a couple of times, the builder
says it’s including it, but the slew of ‘objects not found messages’
is still there in the resulting app, together with the funny look of
the resulting DSP Status windows.

Any idea?

Best,

Zip

Can’t get much simpler than this. Build an app with or without
including the DSP Status Patcher. Doubleclick the adc~ object in the
resulting app. What do you see?

Best,

Zip

hi zip,

i have had similar problems in the past which seemd to be cured when i
gave the preference-file an app-specific name in the appropriate field
in the standalone object.
maybe worth a try.

Where is that field exactly? In the Script Builder thingy? I’m afraid
not following you.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi,
For now a simple workaround is to add an instance of ["dsp status"] to your patch in an object box (yes, you need the quotes). The build script should then automagically find that you need all those objects to run the DSP Status window and include them in your application.

We’ll have a look at making this less annoying in the future.

P.s. Please do not, under any circumstances, cross-post to support and the forums with the same issue. We read both, and it makes us really cranky when we have to read the same thing twice. Please make your choice before hitting Send.
