Pattrstorage -> changing between Presets often DAC switching off

June 20, 2013 | 12:35 pm

Hello!

I am wondering about a problem:
I am using max for live-electronic. In my patch I am changing presets
using pattrstorage and autopattr. Now, when i do so, the dac often switches
off – just for a split of a second – but enough. I checked (hopefully) all connections to the autopattr and pattrstorage object – without any success.
no dac~ or ezdac~ is listed in the storage/clientwindow…
maybe someone can help me??

Thank you very much!!

best tim

Max does sometimes suspend operations during pattrstorage recalls.
Also, if you have a named umenu attached to [ad_status switch] it may be included in the pattr system.
Is the dac actually switching off, or is sound just interrupted? Maybe you can test by attaching [ad_status switch] to a print object. Switch between some prestes and note the behavior in the Max window.

Hey,

thank you for your really quick reply!
i was adding an [ad_status switch] and printing out during switching between presets. it is always set to "set 1", so it’s only interrupting the audio/sound. New Patchers with en ezdac~ are also not affected.
and the problem is not existing in every preset. sometimes it works without interrupting.
so audio sometimes is interrupted exactly during the process of recalling some other presets…
