I had been using index~ to help play sounds that are loaded into a
buffer. As the project developed I needed to switch to play~ in order
to play a portion of the loaded sound rather than the whole thing.
The patch is supposed to be able to run for hours on end and could do
this without error when I was using index~. Now that I’ve switched to
play~ I can only get 2.5 hours at the most before Max/MSP crashes.
I am clearing each buffer it has completed playing its loaded file so
I know it’s not a memory build-up…unless of course play~ responds
differently than index~ when a buffer is cleared. Anyway, I’d
appreciate any suggestions to help improve the performance of play~.
Stats of the system are:
