Numerical Stack Overflow

    Hi, I'm more used to PureData however, trying to create a patch within Max for a project. I am basically trying to move a fader and then 5 seconds after the slider has stopped being used i want it to slowly revert back to its original setting of 0, by -10 every second. So that when you move it, then leave it, it will change back. However, no matter how i do it i always get a stack overflow. Can anyone please help! It's very important. I have tried to use a pipe object but it always repeats the movement of the slider over and over. Any help would be much appreciated, many thanks, Chris.

      Trying thinking about it like a math equation. Lets say that on the mouse up the slider's value is 78. If you divide by 10 then multiply by 10 you will go from 7 to then 70 (using ONLY integers and not floating point numbers). Then you can just subtract by 10.
      All of those intervals can be control by a metro object which can be shut off by using "== 0", checking for the sliders value to equal 0.
      Let me know if you still need help. GW

      In these situations it is best to separate your UI from your actual data. Something like this might work for you:
