waveform~ and sync to buffer~

April 4, 2013 | 3:59 pm

I’ve been working with the IRCAM SuperVP.play stuff (it’s really nice, by the way, thanks to whoever sent me to them!) but ran into a problem with one of their examples. It seems that the [waveform~] display does not update automatically when a new file is loaded into the buffer.

I fixed the problem by using [info~] to update the waveform display but the IRCAM people are suggesting that the non-automatic update is a bug in Max. (I’m using Max 5.1.9). Anyone know if this is a bug or is the waveform working as designed?

I can confirm that there is an issue if you load a file which is bigger than the previous one. We will have a look at it for a feature incremental. In the meantime your fix with info~ is totally fine.

An issue with Max or an issue with the SuperVP.play example? In other words, is the [waveform~] supposed to update automatically but doesn’t (in which case it’s a Max bug) or is SuperVP.play supposed to handle the change due to a new file, in which case it’s a (minor) bug in the SuperVP.play example?

The info~ certainly address the problem (whatever its origin) and I’m a happy camper!

waveform~ should redraw properly when the selection message arrives the first time, but it doesn’t (which is the bug that I’ve logged in).
