Can someone replicate this behaviour?

If the dac is on, spat.meter~ causes Max to crash if there is a UI or a message interaction with gain.
Spat 4.9.1 32/32f, Max 7.2.4 on Mac OSX 10.9.5

Even the simplest patch such as this crashes:

Hi Anders,

Could you please try out the attached version and let me know if it still crashes ?

Hum… That’s weird.

Could you please provide the crash report(s) ?
You can find them in ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports.

Also, is Max scheduler in overdrive ?

Here is an addition to the weird spat.meter behaviour that Anders reported:

– on my laptop (fast Macbook Pro running Yosemite), patches open fine as normal. Latest spat. Fine in Max 6 and Max 7.
– on the big Mac Pro (very fast 6 core machine) a simple patch with just spat.meter connected to the dac crashes when the volume is adjusted. As shown in Anders’ patch. Attached is the crash report. Same in Max 7 and runtime Max 6 (don’t have full max 6 on that machine). Same in 64 or 32 bit mode. BUT: if I swap out to the 2014 version of spat.meter there are no problems.

There is also something else weird with something is spat on with the fast machine that’s not showing up on the laptop (maybe spat.send / spat.receive), but one problem at a time…

Best wishes

Hi Natasha,
Thanks for the report.

Everything runs fine on several of my computers with El Capitan.
This looks like an OS-dependent weird issue… Not so sure if I will be able to do something about it.

Would be curious to see the issues with spat.send/spat.receiver. Might be unrelated, but might also give me some hint…
