dac~ start

    Mar 10 2010 | 10:46 am
    Hello! I've got a little problem to run a patch in max 5 ( in max 4.6, to start the dac~when launching the patch, i used to do {loadbang} -> {deferlow} -> (start) -> {dac~}
    I can't get this working with max 5!!
    Am I missing something?? please help if anyone knows, it's kinda crazy if i can't do such a basical trick in max 5..

      Hi Just check the help for the objects - start by holding cursor over inlets to see what messages they accept (and create messages/objects as well). Deferlow - accepts 'Message to be deferred'
      You simply got the order wrong [loadbang] - [start] - [deferlow] - [dac]

      ok, but deferlow accept bangs too. anyway, I tried [loadbang] - (start) - [deferlow] - [dac] and it doesn't work too.

      This was always tricky, even with pre Max5 versions. deferlow is not enough... You should add an ugly delay between your loadbang and the dac~. Or try to send start messages repeatedly until it does work (you can test this in many ways).
