Trouble reading and writing itable at the same time.


    Mar 29 2010 | 6:18 pm
    I'm trying to read a value (y) from itable at position (X), perform a calculation on the y value then write the new value and then move to the next position (x). Max is getting confused and often thinks my y value is associated with the x value before or after then x value it is actually associated with.
    This may be just be a large lack of any ordering with triggers.
    Any help is appreciated.

      This sounds like a problem with [buddy].
      I wouldn't use it in this context, because depending on what inlet
      gets the very first input, you'll get different pairings.
      An alternativ would be to give the itable a name (inspector/table name).
      Then you can use multiple [table "tablename"] objects, that share the
      same data but have decoupled read/write.
      This will make the patch more cleaner and easier to debug.
