Visual feedback & realtime interaction with Roli Boocks


    Feb 13 2017 | 6:55 pm
    I have tried to build a simple sequencer with 4 different timers. The goal is to be able to define the sequence range and to be able to play on the pads to temporary change the sequence, but when I do that Max keeps crashing if I`m in OVERDRIVE mode ON.Sometimes it takes a few seconds to crash and others up to 1 min or 2, but it’s almost certain that it crashes in while.
    If it's not in Overdrive mode the patch works fine. But I need Overdrive on for the patch.
    So I would like to ask if it’s possible to run Blocks Light pad for visual feedback of Max and at the same time interact with it.
    I’m attaching a simple example for review. Please try to play on the pads and the toggles below for a while. If someone can report back the behaviour that would be great. I have tested and confirmed this behavior on two macs MBP mid 2014 (Siera) & Mac Pro 2008 ( Yosemite). Any help would be much appreciated. THX
