max/msp crashes with soundflower 16ch as input device

March 16, 2009 | 9:01 am

When we choose "Soundflower (16ch)" as input device then quit max/msp then relaunch, accessing immediatly to the dsp status window through the menu ‘options’ makes max/msp crash. Removing the preference file ‘CoreAudio@Built-in Out.txt’ solves the problem.

Content of the preference file ‘CoreAudio@Built-in Out.txt’:

max v2;
dsp prefsr 44100;
dsp prefiovs 512;
dsp prefsigvs 64;

I shouldn’t be saying that here in cycling 74 forum, once soundflower is a freeware application from cycling design for routing audio between aplications, but I personally think that the jackpilot for mac (hijack), is now working much better than the soundflower, although in fact it needs a bit more of cpu – a minimal difference which be critical in some cases

when I refer about much cases I am talking about situation in which you have to route several buses of audio

but if you have a good computer it might be irrelevant (it also depends on what you are doing)?

I can’t reproduce here with Max 5.0.6 and Soundflower 1.4.3, on Intel 10.5.6.

If you are still having problems, feel free to send a crash report to support at cycling74 dot com.
