Subject: Installation Blues

I recently upgraded to MAX 3.5.9 and cannot run the programme on my
7600/132.  Both the PPC Native and 68K versions hang when I try to launch
them, forcing a "rude" reboot.  I tried installing on a G3 at the college
where I work, and there were no problems at all.  Does anyone know what's
going on here?  I don't have HFS+ or anything else unusual as far as I can
tell...

with best wishes,
John

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're trying to do, but I
hooked up a counter 0 0 11.  Apparently, you are using the bang from
the 3rd outlet to send an 8th note tick, which happens everytime the
counter reaches 11?  Why not put a 'sel 0' on the counter output
(1st leftmost outlet)?  This then bangs immediately with the first
input to the counter, then bangs 12 inputs later, etc.  But this
seems rather obvious, so perhaps I don't understand...

Did you try all the usual fixes?:
- trash the MAX Preferences file
- empty the trash (may contain too many Max Temp Resources files)

Hey
Can someone who is familiar with both BigEye and Rokeby's Very Nervous
System, please tell me the differences and the similarities betweeen
these two different video signal processing software. I am going to
use for an interactive video/audio installation and I am curious
to hear someone's opinion?
