Problem from Max 5 to Max 6

    Dec 22 2012 | 6:09 am
    I keep experiencing problems when open Max 5 patch in Max 6. Here is one of the example. The reverb I use Max 5 sounds very weird in Max 6.
    See the attachement. Please let me know what I can do. I guess the Tech Support cannot solve the problem immediately before they update the software.
    PS: I also have problems with my harmonizer patch which works fine in Max 5, but not in Max 6.

      It seems that no one can explain what happens in Max 6. With the same patch, the reverb effect in Max 5 becomes something like the ring modulator in Max 6. I have contacted cycling74 support but also got no response.

      It is very weird that cycling74 support told me the patch I attached just sound the same in Max 5 and Max 6. Could someone help test the "revtest.maxpat" patch and let me know if it sounds the same in both Max 5 and Max 6 ?
      Thank you so much.

      Reverbs sound pretty much the same to me, unless I'm missing something... I took a quick recording of each, through SoundFlower into Live. Hope this helps!

      Same here, they sound the same (in 6.0.8). Make sure you have the same vector size preferences.

      Thank you so much.
      I did notice that the vector size in Max 6 will automatically reset to 1024 for IO vector size, and 256 for signal vector size. When I set it to 128 for IO vector size, and 64 for signal vector size, then it sounds normal.
      How do I know which will the best setting ? Or is it something that I need to try by error ?
