automatic sample rate change on mac


    Feb 15 2019 | 4:50 pm
    Dear all,
    As far as I know, at least on Macs, changing the sample rate in Max indeed updates the sample rate of the core audio drivers, but the opposite is not true: changing the sample rate of the interface outside Max (for instance in Audio/Midi setup) does not automatically updates the sample rate in Max.
    I know this problem for a while, but it is quite annoying, and I had recently several problems related to it, that obliged me to redo complete mixes: Max was used as an audio processor as external insert, and since it thinks it works with a sample rate which is not the actual one, the coefficients for most of the processing algorithms (among other filters, fractional delays etc.) are wrong.
    So my questions: 1/ any chance that this problem may be solved in the future? 2/ is there a workaround for now? All the best,

      + 1 !!
      I was testing Max in the last weeks and I'd love to have that possibility.

      Hello,
      There is a working trick here ! Have a good day

      Hi Matthieu,
      I know the trick already, but it requires having the patch always open, whatever project I'm working on. This is not very elegant, and there should be an integrated solution for that, since all DAWs are able to detect a sample rate change.
