Editing m4l devices outside live — buffer~ issue when no initial length
I realized that a buffer~ initiated without a length can not be accessed by functions anymore. At least on my two machines, both os 10.6, max 6.1.3 See:

buffer doesnotwork is epmty here, buffer works is initialzed correctly.
I can change my buffer objects in max (opening them up with audi off) and add an inital lenght, but live instantly crashes when loading a device using this method (I use it a lot for windowing).
So here is the Question:
Any idea how to change my m4l patches meanwhile without opening them in live?
Turning Audio off in m4l still crashes too.
Filed a report already but need to be able to use these m4l devices by tomorrow….
i ran into a similar problem yesterday with buffer and wave. there was a bug introduced in max 6.1.3. i contacted support and got an incremental update for the wave object within a few hours.
as it is weekend i can see possible workarounds. if you still have live 8 and max 6.0.8 installed open your devce in live 8 to edit it. otherwise downgrade to max 6.1.2.
i have a mac version of it and could forward it to. right now i am not at my laptop but i will be in about one hour.
Hi Jan, thanks for the idea! Best.J
