Max 7 - plot crashes when refer used for buffer


    Dec 21 2014 | 8:30 pm
    Hi,
    I'm wondering why this patch chrashes in Max 7? Works perfectly in Max 6.
    It seems to be something to do with the "buffer" object and adding "@samps 500" to it as an argument.
    When you try to drag any of the multisliders around it crashes in Max 7 and if you create an amxd out of the compressed patch, the amxd wont even load in Ableton 9.1.6/Max 7.
    I'm puzzled by this. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
    Cheers

      ACtually it seems more like the problem is to do with the "plot" object crashing when trying to refer to the buffer. Still stumped though as to why

      Anyone else try this yet? Very odd error.

      On my system (Mac OS X 10.9.5) Max doesn't crash, but it hangs and I have to force quit.
      Apparently, it works fine if I change the buffer name to ---xyz try this:
      EDIT: I correct, it still seem to slow down everything, like there's some memory leak.

      Thanks for testing LSKA. Interesting that it happens on mac too. I'm testing on Win. I think if you change to ---xyz, it might work because it's not referring to the same buffer any more (all of them should be able to work with ---x). I've sent it into c74. They seem confident they can look into a fix :) Thanks again.

      Sorry, I mean I changed all the buffer-related objects' refer to ---xyz, not only the buffer. If you look at the patch I attached in the previous post, you can see.
