Having issues with Gen~


    Jan 09 2012 | 4:01 am
    Hi, I've just upgraded to the new version of Max 6 + Gen from the last version of Max 5.
    I seem to be encountering repeating problems whenever I try to use Gen~ or load up any of the Gen~ example patches.
    For some reason when I use Gen~ after a while all visual feedback stops. I can still move sliders and dials and they have the right effect but I can't see them or anything else in the patch move. This fixes for a short time if I close and reopen Max.
    Also I seem to be missing some objects. For example [norm] [sample] and [swiz] come up as errors.
    Is anyone else experiencing this problem or know a way to fix this odd behaviour?

      [norm] [sample] and [swiz] are jitter gen objects, not gen~ objects. I'm not sure about the visual feedback. Do you mean that UI objects don't redraw (like scope~ etc.)?

      Are you using Max 6.03?
      Does it happen with all audio drivers?

      Thanks for the responses. Yeah the issue stops everything from being redrawn, scope~, number~, live.gain~ etc.
      I have only tried it on mac internal audio, I'm running Max6.03 on a MacBook Pro with OSX 10.6.8. It seems to only happen when I use gen~
      Forgive my ignorance with gen~ (I've only just opened the examples file) do I have to create a jit.gen~ object to access this rather than a standard gen~ object?
