Problem with DSP?

    Oct 02 2012 | 9:27 pm
    I have no idea why, but every patch be it new, help, super basic I never get any sound.
    All peripherals unplugged. Restart Max5, restart OSX, nothing. When I go to check my DSP, it will always say it's off no matter what my DAC~ is at. I manually turn it on but...nothing. No sound. Not even any data gets put through sfplay~/buffer~/adc~/etc..
    What can I do to figure this out?

      =( am really hankerin for something. I have no idea what is going on. The thing is it was showing signs of something wrong before. I used to have to turn the DAC on and off 5 or 6 times and keep sending sfpay~ a 2 (for preload) for example and then something would click and start working. Now I can't get anything.

      Thanks for the reply! I'm sorry it took so long to get back, I was workiin on another project.
      The thing is if I open up the sfplay~ help file or any help file that makes sound I get nothing. I really don't want to reinstall everything as it terrifies me that I might lose some of my current work.

      I really don't want to reformat because of all my other projects. It takes me days to get everything organized and backed up and I thought this would be faster..
      What things can I do to troubleshoot? I'm beginning to think that my core-audio processor might be catching a cold or something. I mean I've got tons of weird "ghost in the machine" type stuff in Logic that I put up with too.

      looks like a reformat again. sucks.
      anybody have experience using time machine? I imagine it's an image that would be restored and if I have this problem now...won't I just copy the problem over?

      If you have figured out the problem, please share so that others who might have have had the same problem can learn. Even if it was a silly issue, it can be beneficial to share.

      Quite a coincidence. Someone posted a similar issue on the Apple Mainstage forum.
