seq~ not working... partial reinstall?


    Aug 28 2007 | 4:11 pm
    Hey,
    on my system (latest m/m+j, latest java+quicktime, winXP) seq~ doesn't
    work. When banged it reports that "last phase: 0.000000", even though a
    phasor~ is feeding it, and no sequence of events can be output from seq~.
    I suspect that my install may be buggy, but then again seq~ loads just
    fine and responds to querying, it just doesn't... work.
    Is there a way to *just* reinstall seq~ and nothing else? I've
    experienced that my system is very fragile and prone to sudden death
    when I try to tweak.
    Andreas.

      Weird - I never received this on the mailing list??!?
      Anyway, I am going to copy over seq~ from my laptop... here's hoping I don't mess stuff up ;-)

      that should work fine, thats how minor updates are installed anyway... but YMMV!

      Alas, that did not work, which implies that the problem is
      *elsewhere*... sigh.
      So: full reinstall it is...

      Might be an idea to post your patch, perhaps you simply made a mistake?

      The helpfile for seq~ doesn't work ;-) - that was enough to convince me
      and skip right to the solution instead. It works on my laptop, so I am
      also confident that I have eliminated user error in this.

      Ok, sounds like a strange problem though. Curious whether a reinstall solves this.

      Hi,
      just kidding but have you tried to look at the settings for:
      - Performance options
      - DSP status (I/o vector size, etc)
      - Overdrive on/off
      ?
      Just my 0.01 eurocents.
      All the best

      hehe, you know? I was just going to write something suitably nasty back
      to you, but then I triplechecked, and I actually saw that my Signal
      Vector Size was set to 1. Now, that hasn't been a problem before: I
      could hear the various phasor~ and cycle~ elements I've used, and I
      could see the phasor~ in the seq~ example going...
      but then I changed it to "2" and lo and behold.... seq~ only works with
      sig vector size >1. But at least I have it working now :-)
      Thank you for kidding!
      Andreas.
      PS; Is that a global limitation or just local to my machine?

      Andreas,
      I'm sorry, I don't know, but I remember in the past somebody had a
      similar strange problem caused by signal vector size=1.
      All the best

      Alessandro, please don't be sorry; your advice certainly helped me crack
      this, and I'm really grateful.
      Yours,
