Max6:stop sound soon with high frequency cycle~.

Nov 02 2011 | 9:32 am


in max6, connect cycle~ (around 10000hz) with *~ and connect right inlet of the*~ with flonum.
And rise up the value of flonum, soon the sound of this patch will stop because of too big volume.

in max5, the same patch was running without any trouble.

Do you know why, and solution?

Briefly trying this on an internal build I cannot reproduce.

We’ve got some fixes in for cycle~ for the incremental (6.01) update which will be due out next week. If that doesn’t fix this, then please show us the patch you are using to cause this problem

I made a very simple patch that reproduces ALWAYS the cycle~ bug – output saturates after a while.

Tried an two Windows 7 computers, intel i5 and i7 CPUs.

How can I upload the bug-patch to your Bug-report form?

I have the same problem with Max6.0.1 on a Lenovo Thinkpad Win7Pro 64bit…

Won’t bother posting a patch because even the MSP-tutorial#1 crashes:
As soon as the "start" message is pressed, I hear a 1000Hz cycle for half a second, then the window freezes. Then it says (not responding) and has to be forced closed.

This seems to happen with ANY audio output object.
