plugsend~ causes constant crashes.

i am trying to use plugsend~ and plugreceive~ to send audio to a midi channel.
(for sampler purposes)
but it appears the that these object create “a serious program error”
which makes live crash. this is pretty solid. crashes every time.
i could upload it as an escape from live patch. anyone has any idea
on why it is crashing?

From the reference page:

“The use of the plugsend~ and plugreceive~ objects to pass audio between Max for Live devices is not supported.”

But maybe you don’t need sending audio at all since a sampler with midi input and audio output can be implemented as an M4L *instrument* device.

An other option might be to send the MIDI data to a audio channel using [send] / [receive]. Though you have to note that this might cause unpredictable latency.

a. plug send plug receive works great. allmost no added latency (i can scratch a record in the plugreceive channel without feeling slow)
b. problem solved audio output on a midi effect. newbie mistake.
