New to Max confused about Counter object

Mar 18 2011 | 11:23 am

Hi – I am new to Max / max4live. I am just trying to reset all the arm tracks to off automatically. I have sussed out most of this but am confused about the counter object.

I have had a programming background in the past and am used to the idea of a "repeat until loop"

I can see how I can use the counter to loop through the tracks – but I cant see how to automate the process.

If I use the Metro object the minimum value for increment is 5ms and I want this process to be instantaneous.

Are there any other ways to automatically advance a counter object or is there another way of achieving this.

I have attached the file – Very grateful for any help – This is my major stumbling block to getting into max4live as alot of what I currently want to use m4l for is to automate information gathering about a live set to feed it back out to Bomes mdi translator.

Regards Richard –

I can’t open your patch as I don’t own m4l. If you post on the Max forum, please attach (or better paste compressed) Max patches. There is a forum dedicated to m4l.

Anyway, your problem seems to be Max related, maybe uzi‘s third outlet will help you.

Thanks for your reply – That has helped me complete the first bit of max patching which has a practical use to me.
