The problem with the ‘scramble’ scripting thing is that it utterly ruins order of operations – and there are many many instances where getting the order of operations correct is important (animating an LCD, for instance).

I’ve used pd before max and I took over the habit of using [trigger], whenever the order of execution is important…

@mudang: you should use [trigger] in Max, too.

Why not simply patches to share??
