Pleeeeeease update vexpr to make it handle longer lists!

    Dear Uncle '74,
    While some objects like zl or multislider can now handle very long lists, vexpr has become a real bottleneck with its limit of 256 items (still there in Max 8.1.3).
    It would be nice if vexpr had at some kind of attribute to make it handle longer lists whenever needed, the same way zl has an argument to achieve this.
    Thank you!

      I agree with you. In the past, I've used Jitter (jit.expr) to overcome this limitation. One could also use other Jitter math operators or jit.gen.

      Interesting ideas. Thanks Pedro!

      interesting, my version of Max 8.1.3 doesn't pose such a limitation...

      I've tested your patcher and indeed it functions for me too! And I can't find on which patcher I was working anymore. So either the issue is linked to a specific function within vexpr or it's elsewhere in this patcher.
