Hi all - I'm analysing traffic from my M4L device and I see a lot of data coming out of the device without understanding what triggers it.
here's some info about my setup:
* The M4L device is pretty big, it reports track, device and parameter names, and it monitors a lot of things, like track volume levels.
* The M4L device has no [loadbang] objects, all is triggered nicely in sequence from one single [live.thisdevice].
* All of the data is sent out of Live using udpsend, I catch the data (udpreceive) and analyse it in a Max patch
When I doubleclick [live.thisdevice] I see the bang (I log it) and subsequently a neat step by step initialisation (ie I get all the live set data in an orderly manner)
However when I load the liveset, or remove and re-add the M4L device, it's a mess. A lot of duplication of messages, and -weirdly enough- a lot of messages from objects BEFORE the live.thisdevice triggers.
Did anyone else notice that M4L devices get busy even before the live.thisdevice bangs?
