works in poly~ but not in poly~ in poly~

    May 09 2006 | 11:37 am
    While looking for a problem, I created a little ensemble: a sig~ (initialized to 1.) and a float go into a *~ and out to a signal monitor, so that the monitor reflects the float value, assuming that DSP is turned on.
    I have a poly~ in a poly~, and here I get a value of 1. however wildly I change the value of float.
    And I have not the foggiest.

      the patch is huge.
      I've discovered something that is very puzzling. That little ensemble is in a patch called modHub~, which is loaded into a poly~ in a patch called voice~.
      If I load modHub~ into a poly~ in a new document, everything is fine.
      If I copy everything from voice~ to newDoc~, everything is fine.
      When I rename newDoc~ to voice~, I get the old problem.
      Anyone understand that ?

      Did you trash the old voice~? Max will load the first it can find.

      I did indeed trash the old one, and opened up the new one just to be absolutely sure.
      However, the problem is fixed. Though I don't know why, here's how:
      The problem arose after a new system (and hence Max) installation. The I/O buffer sizes were then on default (64 and 256, I believe). There is a loadmess message to modHub~ "down 32". I disabled that - no problem. I reenabled that and set the buffers to 128 and 128 - again, no problem.
      So problem solved, thank you for the help, and if anyone can explain that... ?
