Possible bug using Play~ Polybuffer~ Poly~

Nov 11 2012 | 9:31 am

I'm trying to read from a Polybuffer~ using Play~ from within a Poly~ but I keep getting a no buffer error in the Max window. If I double click the Play~ within Poly~ I'm getting a waveform display so it's definitely there. The player works fine outside of Poly~.

Anyone else seen this or know what I'm doing wrong?

Windows 7
Max 6.08

Thanks in advance,

You need to provide the correct buffer~ name as argument of play~, sampler1.1 in your example.

Thanks for your reply.

Actually I was sending a set message to Play~ so that wasn’t the problem.

But after checking I just realised that I was using Out instead of Out~… how embarrassing! That’ll teach me for patching too late into the night.
