scope object

August 1, 2010 | 12:12 pm

unfortunately i have the problem that the scope object doesn`t show anything if it is feeded with an audio oscillator signal…i have tried out all the given examples…no success!
I use msp/jitter as a student version on windows 7 (64bit).
Please help!

By the way…is there a way to see that jitter was really activated?

I have this problem even if the firewall etc. is switched off…is it really recommended to use msp/jitter on windows 7 64 bit? …or is it just something i do incorrect…?

if jitter is in demo mode the console will show "jitter is in demo mode"

make a new object, type into it and the Max window will report whether or not you have a full Jitter install

Any suggestions concerning the scope object?

your patch is ok (though I don’t like at all your dsp to be turned on automatically!)

two typical reasons for your scope~ not working might be:
- you don’t have a valid audio driver selected (you can try to set "none", and then set back your chosen driver)
- your signal vector size is 1 (if you are not sure, try with 512 for both signal and i/o vector size)

you can check both these settings in Options/DSP Status

YESS…thx a lot!!

i set the signal vector size to 256 (512 is not offered in the menu bar) and it works! finally i can switch off the tv set and watch funny signals with the scope~ object! Thx

Great forum! hopefully i can help someone some day
