peqbank~ problem

Dear list,

Wietse Zeedijk (wzeedijk@planet.nl) is buidling a prototype for his
graduation project and is having a problem with the peqbank~ object.
It is not exactly clear why it crashes but please read on if you are
familiar with this object. It would be great if you could help him.

When using the Max/MSP object peqbank~ (version 2.0 by Tristan
Jehan), the bank often explodes, resulting in a crash of Max/MSP.
This problem occurs mainly when the parameters of the peqbank are
operated by external sensors (I am using the shelf eq and the
parametric eq and in both cases this problem
exists). Since the sensors send rapidly changing signals I checked if
rapid mouse-movement also resulted in a crash: this was the case. I
am using a Mac G5 with OSX and I also checked if the rapid
mouse-movement-crash existed on a G4 with OSX, this was not the case.
This might mean that the G5 causes the problem.

Can this problem be eliminated? If yes: how?

Are there alternative EQ banks that use the same input parameters as
peqbank for shelf and parametric eq?

Thanks,
–Aadjan

Hmm. It should not crash. For the moment, try putting a speedlim object in between your sensor input and the peqbank~.

As You say, I cannot reproduce this on my G4. Could you send me (offlist) a crashlog and an example patch?
