Hello I just purchased and authorized Max/MSP/Jitter and I'm having a
strange thing happening with my G4 867 titanium Powerbook
when Max/MSP is running. There is a steady, high, sawtooth-like pitch
(a "B" two octaves above middle "C" in fact)
that comes from under the QWERTY keyboard. It seems loudest under the
"L", "O" and "P" keys on the right.
It does this only when Max is open even if there is no patch loaded and
stops the instant that I quit Max.
The sound happens constantly whether or not there are other open
programs and whether or not Max is the forward program.
The sound will stop briefly when opening other programs or when
switching between other open programs.
I have run Reaktor, Supercollider and Pro Tools among other audio
programs on this machine without
anything like this happening. This also happens regardless of wether
the audio is muted or not; or wether or not there
is a mini-plug plugged in the headphone jack which is how I run audio
to a mixer most of the time.
Interestingly though, the sound can be heard through the headphone jack
when the mini-plug is inserted only about halfway in the
jack. I don't know what it is (some weird software induced ground
loop? Max/MSP hates the kind of RAM I have?), but it's pretty darn
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
