Shuttle Buttons


I’m trying to make video playback shuttle buttons in Max, and I can’t get them to function like i’d like them to. Essentially, I’d like to press “L” to add .5 to the rate of playback, and “J” to subtract .5 from the rate of playback. I’ve tried a few different things, but I run into infinite loop errors when I try to GET the current rate and then ADD to it.

Any suggestions?

This is an excellent use for the ‘accum’ object.

awesome, thanks! I’d tried using the accum object previously, but I hadn’t known to use the trigger objects like that. I’m still a noob, but I’m learning!
