It's now been a month since I bought my second hand G2 and I've been lurking on this list since then.

ValSwitch2-1 doesn't act the way it says in the manual. It switches on only when the ctl signal is right on the displayed value, while the manual says it should do so whenever the ctl is above or equal to the displayed value. This is what the little green square shows, and it's also what I hear. I haven't seen any mention of this in this list, but this doesn't seem right.

There's an easy workaround using CompLev, but now I've reached 100% memory on my Mother of All Patches.

My editor is Version 1.40, build 266 and hey, it runs on my Intel mac. According to

http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-25389.html

isn't the intel editor still in beta testing?

Thanks for any relevant info,

Alcofribas

Congrats on your purchase and welcome.

I can't find my manual right now but the online help also states that the "ctrl value arrow buttons set the lower limit where the switch should change".

The behavior you describe is how it has always worked though so maybe the documentation was not kept up to date with the implementation?

There are a lot of tricks for optimising dsp or mem usage, do you want to post your patch here?

welcome Alcofribas

yes you are right, I for one apparently didn't ever bother to look up the module in the help & so I never noticed ... alternatives ... do you need both inputs in your patch?

And yes the beta is still in beta ...

...and the old PowerPC editor works on an Intel Mac, but it crashes occasionally.

Thanks for all the useful replies. You are a friendly bunch indeed.

As you can see I'm the manual reading kind. I think ValSwitch behavior as in the manual would be preferable (certainly more powerful) but now since things are well established the only bug is non-compliance with the specs.

So far I can't complain at all with the editor on MacIntel, and I have a G4 too.

Think I'll deal with my memory problems by sending MIDI messages between areas.

Cheers,

Looking at the help it looks like the text was copied from the window switch, but, to me, the module layout seems to suggest the behaviour it actually has. But indeed I can imagine situations where the help description would be more useful, it depends on what you run into I guess. But like you said, well established, a change would break many patches likely, maybe something for the wish list ... I doubt there will ever be a new OS though.

Hope your MIDI solution will do the trick!
