Soundflower & Jack problem

May 20 2006 | 1:25 pm


I’m trying to process audio in real-time with MaxMSP 4.5.2, then send that audio for further processing in Live 5.2. I’ve tried both
Soundflower and Jack, first setting the driver in Max to the respective program and the input device to Tascam US-122. There are no options for the remaining menus. Then in Live I choose CoreAudio driver, input device Soundflower, output Tascam.

I get only prerecorded sounds through to Live. With Soundflower I seem to be able to send the sound from Live to Max, whereas with Jack Max keeps crashing when I turn audio on with the Jack driver.

In Max preferences I’m not able to select an outgoing port if I choose the Soundflower or Max driver. Should this be so?

I run a 1,33 iBook with Tiger. I appreciate any help.

Max shouldn’t crash with Jack OS X (it doesn’t for me and many
others) – perhaps be sure to make the Max buffer size the same as the
Jack buffer size ??
