doppler~ mystery

In the list of objects that pops up when you click the object tool in
a patcher, I found an object called doppler~. If I try to instantiate
it, I am informed that it doesn’t exist.

Sure enough, it doesn’t. It isn’t listed in the text files in While
adding cross~ to my MaxMSP object lists by editing
/Library/Application Support/Cycling ’74/init/, as a search with
BBEdit revealed. It’s not anywhere on my hard drive, let alone in a
MaxMPS directory, as a “locate doppler” command in the Terminal
attests. I do of course get the doppler examples with that search.

I found this peculiarity while adding cross~ Cycling
’74/init/audio-objectlist.txt. Somehow this very useful MSP filter
was not in the list.

A search of the forums for doppler~ turned up empty.

Not that it seems of any great importance–but does anyone else see
this non-existent doppler~ in their object list? Does anyone know why
it is showing up?

It does not show up here, and the only reason why it would shows up, is
an entrance into any of the text files in the init folder. No matter in
which, they just contain messages to the Max application and will be
executed on start up. I am sure you will find something there.

Exactly what I thought, so I did a multi-file search with BBEdit.
Several times for different strings, skeptic that i was–and turned up
no result. Tried it again just now, same result.

I’ve been trying to run a shell command
sudo find . -exec grep -e “doppler” -f {};
but get an error
find: -exec: no terminating “;”

Not sure what I’m doing wrong, since there is a “;” terminating the command…

Is there any other possible way for items to be loaded into the object
list besides from the init directory?

An object located in max-startup? It would load itself and possibly
install itself into the Object List.

This is probably unlikely in your case.

You have to escape the semicolon:

find . -exec grep doppler {} ;

However, you’re probably going to have other problems with any search
hits, either because the patcher files are binary, or because they’re
text with CR line terminators (and the Unix world expects LF), so the
printout is going to be messy. (There are options to grep to return a
status code only, so you could put together a command which only
shows the filenames.)

Oh: your “-f {}” looks odd – you want to search the file, not lift
the regular expressions from it.

Try this:

find . -exec grep -e “doppler” -f {} ;

aloa bonjour,

I just figured out a Universal Binary version of max an jitter was released.
it is steal a beta but I suppose it can already give an idea of the performances those new intel
based macs can reach.
I have a project going on in which several macminis are trigerd to play videos and sound files
where an additional computer is the remote.
I did that once with 1.42Gh G4 based minis and it worked fine.
I d like to know if I ll have at least the same results with 1.5 intel coresolo minis.
moreover, I heard there were weired sound drops and problems with the OSC objects when running the
previous version which used Rosetta; do those belong to the past now?

any information is welcome.

bedankt & ciao a tutti.

Thanks for the help. Yeah, searching binaries would be a little crazy,
but I was getting bugged by the whole thing…

but something _must have been writing the entry
into his object list.
a third party patch or collective maybe?

i remember that friggin pink third-party bullshit i
once opened in my max app and after that my color
settings in the runtime were gone (all pink and violet!)
