very simple question : send "1" when receiving a bang

Jul 18 2006 | 9:57 am

I am almost new about Max/MSP and I am facing a problem I can’t sort out. Is it possible once receiving a bang to make it send an integer ("1" for instance) ?

It is because when receiving a bang, I’d like to put a GSwitch on right position, and keep it in this position. Do you think it is possible ?

connect the bang to a messagebox contaning the "1" and connect that
message box to the gate

Or bang -> [trigger 1] -> GSwitch
Or bang -> [int 1] -> GSwitch

Hi all,
I have a very trivial problem and most probably it is due to my
unexperience… well, I’m trying to use MSP with an audio input from
Griffin iMic, sending the output through the computer headphone
output but… it looks it doesn’t work…
no audio is coming in … of course iMic is selected as the Input
Device, with Core Audio Built-in Audio System as Driver.. audio is
nothing is happening… I just try a simple adc ("started") to a dac
or an oscilloscope… nothing!
The interface is working as I tried it on other software…

thank you for any help!

Hi Massimilliano,

I had the same problem you do, and I ended up just getting a new audio
interface. I did get a very sketchy but usually functional workaround
up and running using Jack OS X, and making an aggragate audio device
of the built in mic and the iMic inputs. It’s been a while since I
tackled that problem, but I think it has something to do with the fact
that the iMic seems to show up as two seperate audio devices.

Good luck! I’ve read that the iMic just doesn’t play well with some
software… You might be better off investing in an M-Audio interface
– which is what I did.

Great Erik,
I did it everythng and it works!
Thank you very much! you saved my friday’s premiere of a work for
keyboard (and MSP).
Yes I know I have to buy a better interface for live performance…
but iMic is just fine in most of my "routine" concerts…
Well anyway I’ll buy something better (actually a M-Audio, most
probably) in the very next…

Thank you veeery much again
