There doesn't seem to be a way to have live.numberbox send negative integers? The lowest an int can go is 0. You have to use float, then it goes to negative numbers, and run the output through an [int] object to convert the float to int after the fact. What a pain.
1) A regular [number] object does this easy. Why not in live.numberbox?
Another killer feature of the Max number/floatnum objects is that they change numbers faster or slower depending on where you click and drag. You can go from -100 to 100 quickly by clicking and dragging towards the left side of the box. Conversely you can go from 0.002 to 0.01 precisely by clicking and draging on teh right side of the box. Very handy. Seems that live.numberbox flies through the range the same no matter where you click.
2) Would be great to have this feature in live.numberbox too. I find myself using floatnums still in my maxforlive devices because they are so much better when using the mouse and I lose the ability to easily store the value in the live set or use Live's MIDI mapping on them. :(
