Having issues with Gen~

Jan 09 2012 | 4:01 am

Hi, I’ve just upgraded to the new version of Max 6 + Gen from the last version of Max 5.

I seem to be encountering repeating problems whenever I try to use Gen~ or load up any of the Gen~ example patches.

For some reason when I use Gen~ after a while all visual feedback stops.
I can still move sliders and dials and they have the right effect but I can’t see them or anything else in the patch move.
This fixes for a short time if I close and reopen Max.

Also I seem to be missing some objects. For example [norm] [sample] and [swiz] come up as errors.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem or know a way to fix this odd behaviour?

[norm] [sample] and [swiz] are jitter gen objects, not gen~ objects. I’m not sure about the visual feedback. Do you mean that UI objects don’t redraw (like scope~ etc.)?

Are you using Max 6.03?

Does it happen with all audio drivers?

Please feel free to get in touch with support

Thanks for the responses. Yeah the issue stops everything from being redrawn, scope~, number~, live.gain~ etc.

I have only tried it on mac internal audio, I’m running Max6.03 on a MacBook Pro with OSX 10.6.8. It seems to only happen when I use gen~

Forgive my ignorance with gen~ (I’ve only just opened the examples file) do I have to create a jit.gen~ object to access this rather than a standard gen~ object?
