Glitch where message is only send maybe 90% of the time OSC

Hey Guys,

Been working on this OSC converstion thing for a while now. I’ve had a lot of help from you guys already and you’ve all been instrumental in helping me to understand max. But once again I’ve reached a stumbling block. This patch is 90% perfect. the only problem i get is when midi mapping the output to the clips the live API should read this and give me the clip playing status to send out again via OSC.

The OSC connection is stable and triggers clips perfectly. the only thing which doesn’t work every time is the sending of the message which I’ve detailed in the patch.

Would really appreciate if you guys would take a look and see if I’m doing something stupid?

Cheers

Wilbur

Without being able to look at your patch at the moment I’m wondering if one issue could be that maybe are you working with UDP instead of TCP? UDP (sorry if I’m explaining this inaccurately) drops packets when there’s a backlog, TCP doesn’t. So could you be losing packets without realizing it (so the message isn’t getting through)?
