forgotten object??? goin crazy

Hi all,

Silly question. What is the name of the object that takes a bang in its input and outputs a bang out of one output then on next bang will output bang on next output n so on?

Driving me mad. Im looking everywhere. I think I may be hallucinating, Im MAX ‘D out.

cycle? (no tilde)

nope thats not it, I used to use it max 4, maybe they renamed it.

Its very simple. It just takes a bang, and sends a bang out of each output one after another.

bang in 1- out 1

bang in 1- out 2

bang in 1- out 3

so on. Im sure it must exist its almost like a counter. Umm maybe il just use the bloody counter.

well then you are going to have to provide a tad bit more information for us to be helpful to you I suppose. Bang in inlet to cycle first time goes to first outlet, bang second time goes to second outlet, bang third time goes to third outlet…is this not what you are asking?

opppps so it does! My bad. Help file kinda made think it had to be a number to bang an outlet, which I did with counter. Ive been doin my patch all day and am little tied.

It was not the case with Max < 5. Now cycle accepts bangs.

I second that, it’s not exactly what you want in this case (successive outputs on bangs), but trigger is one of the most useful Max objects… you can really set things up exactly how you want the processes to flow, and there’s no worry about the right-to-left placement of your objects.

If I understand correctly what it is you’re after, there are a couple of 3rd party objects that do this, banger and bangseq, the first being an Lobject and the second being available on Darwin Gosse’s share page.

PS. Tip –

banger! your the man (I knew i wasnt going crazy). Cycle now does the job fine these days with max 5, 4 didnt do it so banger is what i used.
