Buffer~ initialization causes DSP to stop


    Dec 19 2011 | 7:43 pm
    Hey,
    I am wondering if it is possible to avoid DSP drop-outs when initializing a new buffer~, for a example in a dynamic poly~ patch? I need to dynamically create buffers but this issue ruins all the effort. Any ideas?

      Well, I am using oo objects and all the poly~ goodness already however my question remains unanswered. I don't want the initilization of buffer~ to stop DSP, that's the problem.
      I might just create one poly~ to hold hundreds of buffers (so it would one-off event) to assign them to whatever I need later, hmmm...

      Are you using Max 6?
      How come creating buffer~s is interrupting audio? May we please see a patch?
      Cheers

      yes, I am using Max 6.
      My patch is a bit too big and dependent on parent patchers so I can't paste it here however I can only replicate DSP drop-out when deleting a buffer~ but not creating it, does it happen to you as well?
      What happens when you delete the buffer in the patch below?

      If I try your patch in Max6, there is indeed a short dropout when I delete the buff buffer. In Max5, the dsp stops definitively after the following sequence: deleting the buffer, undo, deleting the buffer again.
      In Max6, this behavior seems to have been corrected.
