Error message

May 08 2011 | 1:48 pm


I’m quite new to max and this might be an easy thing but i’m getting these two messages. A red one that says: buffer~ | sine: can’t open and a yellow one that says #N: extra arguments for message "s" and #N: extra arguments for message "key" .. I’m a bit puzzled by it, any ideas on this ?

I fixed the first error .. But im still getting this one : #N: extra arguments for message "key"

Does anyone know what might be the cause of this ?

When you get the message #N extra argument it means that within the object you have written an extra piece of data ie: metro is an object that sends out a bang X times a second. You set the interval by adding an argument. So if I wanted to send a bang every second than in the metro object I would type metro 1000.

The object key doesn’t take any arguments. You can find this out on any max/msp/jitter object by going to the help patch and clicking the reference page on the top right. There is a section that tells you what arguments and how many it will accept.
