max crashes loading pfft~ patch

November 15, 2009 | 3:40 am

hi, i have the patch loaded below, which crashes every time i open in. it crashes when dsp (core audio built in output) is turned on. e.g. when dsp off, the patch loads ok, and crashes when dsp is turned on, with dsp on, max crashes upon loading the patch. theres nothing actually inside the pfft~ subpatch so i cant post it, its saved as spectrumcalc.pfft in the same folder as the main patch. could someone please help at all? also i copied from the pasted below and tried again it did the same thing, and also different fft sizes/overlap factors produce the same effect..

edit: sorry, system details are:
MAX/MSP 5.0.8 (40079) os x 10.4.11 mac book pro 2.2ghz core 2 duo 2g RAM
using coreaudio built in output (as stated)

this is ridiculous. why do my pfft~ patches keep crashing max? others work, why not mine? i press cmd-n -> new patcher, save as the subpatch name in the same folder as the main one, theres a variety of extensions which i have from several examples, tried all these same result (i.e. .maxpat, .pfft, .pfft~) but it still crashes max as soon as i turn dsp on. pls help!

Please, send a mail to support [at] cycling74 [dot] com, with a patcher example and a crashlog so we can have a look at it.

hi Emmanuel,
i was reading in the change log for 5.08 a bug with empty pfft patches crashing max, so i tried and put a fftin/out pair in my patcher and i can turn on dsp without issue, so maybe it’s the same thing? anyway i’ll send some stuff to support, cheers,
