dac~ start

I’ve got a little problem to run a patch in max 5 (< - I'm new to this one!)
in max 4.6, to start the dac~when launching the patch,
i used to do {loadbang} -> {deferlow} -> (start) -> {dac~}

I can’t get this working with max 5!!

Am I missing something??
please help if anyone knows,
it’s kinda crazy if i can’t do such a basical trick in max 5..

Just check the help for the objects – start by holding cursor over inlets to see what messages they accept (and create messages/objects as well). Deferlow – accepts ‘Message to be deferred’

You simply got the order wrong [loadbang] – [start] – [deferlow] – [dac]

but deferlow accept bangs too.
anyway, I tried [loadbang] – (start) – [deferlow] – [dac]
and it doesn’t work too.

This was always tricky, even with pre Max5 versions. deferlow is not enough…
You should add an ugly delay between your loadbang and the dac~. Or try to send start messages repeatedly until it does work (you can test this in many ways).
