get bang from paybar

November 22, 2012 | 2:46 pm

How do I get a bang message from a play bar object, when I start playback?
It worked fine in Max 5 but in Max 6 I get the message: "connect red to unsupported object" – which is actually a bang. Any workaround?

thanks, frank

I can verify that this doesn’t work in Max 6. But, I have no solution. Once playbar is connected to a supported object it stops sending out regular max messages.

Also, it seems like the right outlet never sends out anything.

that sucks. why does it work on Max5 but not on Max6?? That gives me a huge problem with a patch. Is this a bug or made by purpose ?

I had that issue too. You can make a java class and check the distance between frames.. boring , but works.
If you dont know java you can make this with normal objects too.
