new [sc3~] object
I am releasing v 0.996 (Max5, OSX 10.5/6) of my [sc3~] object for

I hope people find this useful — Good luck, enjoy it! For more

I hope this is an appropriate thread for this question…
I just figured I’d like to give the [sc3~] object a quick try before possibly going into seriously learning some supercollider. So I downloaded supercollider 3.4.4 and your object but the help files completely freeze max as I switch on the ezdac~. The only way out is a force quit. Also the same case in just an empty patch with nothing but the sc3~ object and an ezdac.
SuperCollider.app itself works flawlessly, I also tried replacing supercollider with an earlier version (3.4) and I tried with no externals except sc3~ in the search path.
I’m on Mac OS X 10.5.7, Max 5.1.9, also have 6.0.1 available. Same thing there.
Please let me know if I can provide you with any more information to try and solve the problem. I’d love to get going with some SC within Max.

sc3~ doesn’t require any SC3 downloading; it contains all the code + executables it needs inside itself. However, because of the way SC3 is set up, it will probably search the installation(s) of SC3 you have in addition to the max sc3~, and that’s probably where the problem(s) are occurring. I do know that there are a few “quarks” that will cause crashes. These are usually involved with display and interface aspects of the ‘native’ SC3. Someone sent me this awhile ago:
but I haven’t been staying current with newer SC3 additions, so there may be others (and in fact there probably are…).
The deeper problem is that sc3~ is a fairly brittle object. Unlike the other language-objects (rtcmix~, chuck~, maxlisp, etc.) I needed to abide by the terms of the SC3 license, which meant that I was unable to imbed it inside max/msp as I would have preferred and had to rely on socket connections for communication to and from the SC3 code ‘proper’.
The other problems are that the object works on my machines, OSX 10.6.8 and with both max/msp 5.1.7 and 6.0.1, which makes it hard for me to debug. I’m also not a regular user of SC3, I sort of did this to see if I could. Sort of.
Some day in the future I may revisit the code to see what changes might make it work better, but time, time, time…

Hi Brad and thanks for such a rapid response.
I understand – of course.
