    I'm having consistent crashes choosing pptime and pptempo from the object list. This is with Pluggo 3.5.4 on a Powerbook G4 and Max 4.5.7. Opening the respective help files works with problems, though.

      I am working on a PC with WindowsXP.
      My Max-version is 4.5.

      this is my third attempt to write to the mailinglist, my attachment was too long.
      I will try and explain it without the patch then:
      I am writing an algorithm to understand the word "stop". When the sound comes in, it's compressed by octi.max, it gets split in 8 frequency bands, averaged, put into a function and later compares (not done yet).
      Recording is with record~ and buffer. Playback is with groove.
      Everytime I switch the sound on, Max is crashing (on other machines as well). There must be a dataflow or bang/metro/counter-chronology problem. I have been troubleshooting for a long time now and can't find anything.
      Are there any classic crashing issues I should know ?
      I would be UTTERLY HELPFUL for any advice, as I have to hand in tomorrow afternoon (uni-work).

      Hi Lea,
      Without a patch I don't think anyone can help you. There are just too many things that can possibly be wrong with your patch. Did you try to post the patch as text? Just select all objects and copy-paste to your mail.

      Hi Thijs,
      thank you for replying: I know that there was a high probability of silliness not to have the patch attached but out of desperation and trying it to paste it so many times into the message field without success, I then wrote this email. People can become slightly bonkers (OR really grrr) when they are under pressure like me now.
      I will try again. Apologies for attack.
      P.S. Did not work, well, will hand in now, that's life.

      Lea, just go to the file menu, select open file as text, copy it all, and paste it in here..... seriously.... come on... not hard at all :/

      --Hey bine,
      I am not pretending to be inapt of carrying out such action, but copying and pasting a file that does crash when even looking at it is not an easy affair... I have been maxing and PDing for quite some time now and this never happened before.
      Not "uhh-where's-the-on-button?" stuff.
      When I get it working enough to be a bit stable I will send it. Fingers crossed. :-)
