strange behaviour with overdrive~


    Nov 02 2008 | 7:00 pm
    hi
    when applying a signal with input amplitude greater than 0db, overdrive~ produces a very bad clipping, IF its second input (drive factor) is fed by a signal - if it's a float, all is fine
    what's more, in the included patch the "signal-driven" overdrive still clips even if its gain~ slider is closed!!!
    normal???
    that's on Mac, OSX54, max463 (I know it's not supported.............)

      This was fixed for 5.0.5.

      whew kaspar, it looks like someone just offered to take over the upgrade fee for us! great!
      an upgrade fee for the fix of a bug is always a good idea.

      If you really need it for 4.6, you can download 5.0.5, and copy the overdrive~, it seems to work.
