Meter/Readout Bug (maybe a general MAX bug)

Oct 03 2016 | 10:31 am

Hi C74 team,

I found a bug when reading the output values from a GEN patch and using meters/readouts in MAX.

( IMPORTANT : it could be related not to GEN specifically, but maybe to MAX ).

The attached example is commented, so it is more easy to understand, for any question just ask :)

It seemed to stop doing it when I added a cycle object to the patch. Probably has something to do with how the constant value object works.

Yes it is strange…

It’s not a matter of "constant" or "changing" values, if you add two spectroscopes and two meters, one of the meters does NOT display values lower or greater than (-10000,+10000).

But if you move the spectroscope on the right side of the canvas, everything is correct ! :)

Any hint from C74 team ?
