I don't whether this is the right place to report a bug. I appologize in advance is it's not.
I have noticed a problem with the [receive~ ] object. I was working on a channel selector for the audio output of a patch, with three possible choices : stereo, mono right and mono left. I choosed to send [Set name( messages to my [receive~ ] objects : the stereo position sends each channel to each receive~ (which works fine), the mono right position sets both receive~ objects to get the right channel (which also works fine), but it doesn't seem to work with the mono left position. Both receive~ objects are set to get the left channel, but the ouput is clearly not mono (it is quite different from what i hear when i plug my left channel directly into both inputs of my [dac~] object.
I have tried sending the set messages simultaneously, ot through a [t s s] object, or even manually one after the other, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. I suppose there must be a bug somewhere.
Has anybody had such a problem before?
Bug report receive~
I have changed the names of my channels in both my send~ objects and my set messages, and it's all working just as it should now. I still don't understand what happened, since i had no other send~ and receive~ objects in my patch. I m assuming receive~ doesn't like all names...
if you had the same name for 2 or more send~ objects, it would cause an error.
