Any change results in loss of audio functions!

    I've been using max for over five years. For some reason on a computer I recently got (12" 867ghz G4) - anytime I modify any MSP object or create or delete an audio connection, DSP stops and cannot be restarted until I quit and re-launch max/msp. This happens regardless of the soundcard used. I'm totally mystified - any ideas?

      This sounds like an authorisation issue. Contact the C74 support, they'll be able to help you.

      Interesting, it's authorized to my ilok, strange that that could be the cause but I'm willing to believe it. I'll give them a call.

      As far as i know, i've always had this problem too actualy. When you create or delete an MSP connection, dac~ has to be re-initilized... I thought this was complitiy normal but i'll follow this post then.

      I had this once when the system date reset to 1957 or whatever due to a laptop's backup battery running out. You could run a patch, but not restart dsp in any way (either manually, or by opening a new patch / re-patching) without having to restart Max/MSP. It's a long shot, but maybe you should check your date and time settings?
