Some M4L UI objects won't respond

March 20, 2012 | 5:32 pm

I’ve started getting a problem recently, possibly after an update of Live, where M4L devices I’ve been using no problem for a while will load up with some of the UI objects unresponsive. The objects are not greyed out , they just don’t respond to mousing or automation, other than going bold black outlined to indicate they’ve been selected. Their values are all stuck at zero, or the first item of the list. Its seems to be live.tab and live.menu which get stuck, but only some of these objects. I can’t see any differences between the objects which freeze and those that don’t.

To make things more confusing, sometimes if I delete other M4L devices, or reload the device, the objects free up, but not always. Could there be some kind of conflict with object names or something?

This is happening with most of the devices I’ve made…..headache!

Hi Bin,

What exact versions of Max and Live are you running? What OS and computer model?

There are some issues when using Max 6 on Mac with having over 512 parameters in a device. We should have a fix for this in the long term.

Thanks,
-Ben

Max 6.04
Live 8.3b4
OS X 10.7.3
2.4ghz Intel Core 2 Duo 3Gb RAM

I have around 100 parameters in each of my devices.

Do you mean 512 parameters in the whole song?

Bin,

Yes, apologies. After 512 active parameters, things can get a little unreliable on Mac 6.0.4. Max 5.1.9 does not have this limitation. We will be fixing this for a release down the road.

OK, so I need to go back to using Max 5.19 if I want to use my synths together…..I look forward to this being re-fixed

This is really sucking, a lot of my old songs now won’t work….when is this likely to be fixed?
