[gate] not updating integer value in Max 5

Hey folks,

I have a very strange problem for the very first time ever. When a [number] object changes a value, when it goes through the right inlet of a [gate], and after it’s set to automatically update it with a timed bang, most times it does not update. I tried also including additional [t b]s or a message box, trying to somehow force the update of the integer, and sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t.

Any knows Max 5 bugs there?

Maybe you are experiencing the infamous ‘deferlow’ problem.

Ah, it’s easier to tackle the problem when you know what it is, thank you so much. One of the first things I tried was checking my signal flow, as well as clicking Overdrive, but it doesn’t really fix the problem.
