Eric, I love REC OS X 2.1.3 and I have used it on others macbook pro computers. However it will not provide an interface for my macbook pro 10.5.6 2.5ghz intel core 2 duo.
I am very disappointed.
Do you know what the problem could be, and how can I make it work.
Many thanks
Paulamac

Sorry for this, I'm trying to look forward.

Again, no interface.

This time a different message in Terminal:

powerbook:~ peterfackelmann$ /Users/peterfackelmann/Desktop/REC 211.app/Contents/MacOS/REC
JUCE v1.45
no interfaces folder, you are in serious trouble!

Hi,
and many thanks for the report.
You're right, Rec 2.1 doesn't seem to work on PPC.

I'm trying to change this.

I had the same problem and the workaround worked well, so I think there's some problem in the dmg. Anyway my system is a Mac mini 1.66 Core Duo 2GB.
Keep up the great work!

Hi Citadel, and thanks for your comment!
Well, what you describe is quite strange, and I can't reproduce this on my computer. What system are you running on?

Hi Polyrythmic! i have both an Intel iMac running OS X 10.4.8 and a 1.67HGz G4 Powerbook with the same OS. The problem was the same on both. Thanks.

Hi Citadel,
the problem hasn't been reported yet for OS prior to 10.4.8. It concerns .dmg files compatibility (I'm running 10.3.9).
In December there was an important security alert concerning .dmg files. I suppose Apple has released security updates for these files too quickly.
Waiting for any valid solution, man can use your clever tip!

For the tip, you are entirely welcome. Btw, this is to in a very small way to acknowledge your past kindnesses.

Oh yes, Citadel, now I remember.

Audio never starts on my macbook pro (10.5.4). I have a feeling I am just missing a setting that could be accessed through MaxMSP's standard DSP Status window. You should make that available from the standalone.

Also, using a buffer~ to hold the recorded/loaded sound is both dangerous (crash = your audio recording gone) and it is not suitable for long recordings (takes a loooong time to load/save large audio files as the whole thing must be loaded into or transferred from RAM/VRAM).

I for one do wish MaxMSP had a direct-to-disk audio file editor like the one for buffers. Then you could do all sorts of great things like this with it.

by VRAM i meant virtual memory on disk - not VRAM on the graphics card. Got my terminology mixed up.

REC 1.0 is a handy little app, very useful and hey, it's free! However, with version 1.0, you will not be able to drag the app onto the desktop after running the .dmg. There is a simple work around though. Simply 'ctrl' -click on REC.app in the .dmg window. This will open a menu. Locate the 'Create Archive of "REC.app" entry. Click on this and you'll end up with a zip of the complete app. Simply unzip the resulting file and you'll have your full working version of the application..which can then be moved to any location desired. I'm certain this generous developer will fix the issue shortly. My final recommendation is to check out his other products as well. Nice! Thanks.
