M4L stepless sequencer

Nov 24 2009 | 6:28 pm

I have no movement within the M4L "step sequencer" *until* I edit it ! It then starts cycling just fine – as soon as I return to Live run mode it stops – there is no movement within the transportation patcher unless edited.

Ok – I also thought Max was not going to open as a separate app. When I click the M4L object to edit – it opens Max, but does not open the clicked object. I have to do this one more time to get it into edit mode – i have a hunch this is not the intended behaviour !

Can anyone comment / concur ?

ps – same issue with ‘Max midishuffler’ but not ‘Max StepEcho’

For the record

The culprit was a max file called ‘transport’ which is part of a distribution for ambisonics called sPan.lib
This was in a folder I believed to be outside the Max5 search path but which sneaked into the M4L path !

Hope that (hours of testing by elimination) helps anyone looking for a solution to the same gremlin

I found also out the hard way, that the M4L search path and the Max search path are very different. M4L takes the complete Max 5 folder. This should be corrected in my oppinion…

Did you try "; max paths"?
