I use the max cuthacker (located in the audio effect building blocks folder) quite a bit. The effect is great. But it frequently stops working mysteriously. I can find no rhyme or reason to its behavior. The specific problem is that it sometimes stops passing a signal through. No sound at all. If I turn off the plugin I get a signal again. If I turn it back on, no signal. It has been a problem in performance. I can’t come up with a viable work around.
Any others have this problem, and has anyone found a solution?
I don’t have Max4Live so it’s only a wild guess, but it sounds like the sort of thing you get with a filter or delay-line ‘blowup’, usually through excessive feedback.
Are there any filters and/or delays in the patch? If so, sending them a ‘clear’ message should do the trick,
