To modify a device made by Christian Kleine I added a gain control using live.numbox. But neither the loadmess nor the loadbang worked... Finally I used a live.dial with 'initial enabled and that worked ok. Is there a bug in live.numbox ?
It works in Max but not in M4L because the initialization order is different. In Max loadbangs are executed after the 'initial enable' operation while M4L uses inverse order. So in M4L the loadbang value to live.numbox has no effect as it's overridden by the subsequent 'initial enable' value of 0.
