Misbehaving coll - patch inside

    Nov 23 2011 | 3:01 pm
    Hi guys, I'm having trouble with a patch I'm working on as part of a megapatch.
    The basic idea is to generate a list of numbers for a coll to send through to some multisliders - I'm using the jit.nois + plur combination mentioned in this tutorial (https://cycling74.com/tutorials/noise-tutorial-1-riding-tandem-with-the-random/)
    The problem I'm encountering is that every time I send a bang manually from the top by clicking I get the right behaviour -- 30 lists in the coll to choose from. Every time I get the patch to automatically bang itself the coll only seems to get 1 list to choose from.
    The patch is bellow, I'd be very appreciative to anyone who can help/debug.

      I think a [deferlow] between the [r rejig] and the [t b b b b] in the upper left of your patch should get you there.

      Aha! That fixed it. I wonder why that was necessary?
      Thanks mate.

      I was wondering that too. I manually did a bang into the [send rejig] just moments after the counter did it, and it worked, whereas coming from the counter...nope. Can't figure out why the two would be different...anyway, in cases like this, often a well-placed [deferlow] will help out, as mentioned.
      One other idea, not that it's necessary per se, but you could also just use [jit.matrix] objects to hold your lists of generated data rather than [coll]. Then you can access by [jit.submatrix] or [jit.spill] to get the lists. Might be faster than writing to and and accessing [coll] objects, not sure.

      The difference is that after the deferlow it is not driven from an interrupt. This fixes many problems of this sort. I could not tell you why it's needed here, though.

      I just wonder why Max doesn't give a warning/error message if defer or deferlow is needed. For example, SuperCollider does it. Why not Max?
