Hello I have made a little patch to generate a Fibonacci sequence (with help from a two year old thread on the forum about how to set this up) and then map the given numbers to chromatic pitches constrained to one octave (0-11). I'm making a standalone app as a friend who is a composer. Anyway I have noticed that after about 45 or so iterations of creating the next number in the series after 1,836,311,903 Max starts going into negative numbers and acting weird. Similar results are obtained by multiplication as well. Is there a size limit for working with raw numbers in Max? Probably a really basic question that I should know the answer to by now...

Sorry for the long post. Thanks very much.
