M4L Mono Sequencer – crash

December 16, 2013 | 2:24 pm


M4L Mono Sequencer causes serious crashes in Live 9 !
Seems to be linked to the "pattern change".
I also experienced some audio drops due to CPU peaks when changing sequence pattern.

Bad news… I found this tool really great…

Any idea ??

It seems that Live crashes when I change pattern with quantize option enabled ;;;

Hi Fred-B,

Could you drop me a mail about this? kleine [at] ableton [dot] com

My quick hack to get around this was to automate the device to go off and then on with an automation envelope, a very small 64th note just at the end of the bar.

I’ve been in contact with the Ableton team since dec 2013.
The bug has been reproduced and confirmed.
Since then I’m still waiting for a solution … (can you hear me ?:)

It’s a pity because Mono Sequencer is really a great tool !

I must admit that M4L is far from being the more stable environment ;;;

Hope I can play again with the Mono Sequencer !

This problem has been addressed and the fix will be in Max 6.1.7

Great news !

The crash issue with the mono sequencer seems to be solved. Thank you !!
There’s still something wrong with the use of "quantize" for changing patterns.
It causes a small interruption in audio.
Still not usable with "quantize" on ;;; Arrghhh…
Would it be possible to have this feature ?
