strange behavior


    Apr 22 2006 | 8:42 pm
    Hi all,
    I'm at a total loss. I'm working on a patch, which seems to function fine if I trigger an event manually (either by clicking, or using [key] to trigger) but if i try to automate it with [trigger] or [metro] or even sending a midi event, it behaves completely differently. I know i'm doing something really stupid, but I can't for the life of me figure out what! I isolated the problem in the patch below, it looks like it's doing the same thing if you click or hit tab or use the metro, but if the metro sends a bang, it behaves complely differently. is anyone able to reproduce this?
    thanks so much!
    best, erik

      Hi Erik
      You have two solutions first is simply to put a defer object between the '9' and the 'select 9'
      And the second solution is even more simple - turn overdrive off.
      I struggled with this same thing so i know your pain! The help file for defer helps to explain why this works:
      "When Overdrive mode is enabled, objects such as metro operate in a high-priority scheduler thread. If you want to execute a time-consuming task, such as using an Uzi for repetitive operations or the bang message to a table object, you can defer the output to the lower priority main thread by passing a message through the defer object."
      Hope that helped,
      john.

      Brilliant! Thanks John! That's really good to know, I felt a little crazy for a while.
      Best, Erik

      No, the metro and the bang/tab behave the same. But it seams you want to behave it differently, as the comment states "it should clear the buffer."
      Of course it will fill the buffer with the choosen selection and it does so, no idea why you would expect it to clear the buffer, as the bangs also don't clear it...
      Not quite clear what the metro is aimed for...
