Quartz composer + osc, problemo

    Hi people,
    I have a problem... I have built a simple synth in max msp, and have partially made a visualiser in quartz composer. The idea is that parameters on my synth are networked via OSC to the compo in QC. I've done what i think i need to do, but it doesn't work. Here are the 2 files in a zip...
    Within maxmsp I've connected the parameter's outputs to 'prepend', I've added the parameter name as the argument, then connected the output to the udpsend object with ' 60000' as the arguments. I know the prepends are all outputting correctly (connected outputs to 'print' object, and fiddled with parameters to see if it prints the correct stuff).
    In QC, i have the OSC receiver patch, and have gone into the inspector and have deleted '/test', added the first parameter i want to control "/volOut" as a float, and set the port number to 60000.
    But, when i hover over the /volOut output on OSC receiver, and press a key on the keyboard (which will change the volume), the value 0 shows, and doesn't change, ever, not a sausage.
    Sooo, I created an OSC send patch (right next to the OSC receiver), created a '/volOut', and connected an LFO, to see if it would work within the same program....
    I think i might not have set something up correctly, or ive made a really stupid mistake.
    What do i have to do to make this work?
    Thanks guys
    PS: when you see all of the Math patches everywhere, they are all ready to get connected up to OSC receivers.

      update... the osc send within QC now works, not sure how i fixed it, i didnt change anything. not sure if the osc from max msp works, the demo period has run out :(

      Hi gilo. I am interested in music visualizers but have never used Quartz Visualizer. How do you view your file in Safari or whatever? Is it very fast at graphics?
