Author: ErnstHot  
Description: ***
ehDirtDelay Second Edition is a special edition of ehDirtDelay where delay times a specified in milliseconds instead of notelength. Try delay times of around 1 to 30 ms for flanger-like effects.

ehDirtDelay has a number of unusual if not novel features:

Outside the feedback loop:
- A pre-delay for expanded rhythmic potential.
- Two syncable LFOs with per stereo channel phase settings.

In the feedback loop:
- Unipolar amplitude modulation, for adding dirt, noise and glitch.
- A basic reverb for diffusing the signal or "metalizing" it.
- Three choices for overdrive / distortion.
- Samplerate / bitdepth reduction.

Convenient signal routing options:
- Stereo or mono input.
- Mute left or right input.
- Swap left and right input.
- Feedback stereo balance.
- Invert feedback phase.

Nice, first reaction of Live 9.7.1b3 was a straight crash when I drag and dropped it into the project, after that it loaded fine tho, wonder if this is related to your device tho, could be beta or max for live in general, using all the latest versions, but this has come up with other max for live in the past.

Live and/or M4L does not seem to like it when frozen devices contain samples, which ehDirtDelay does. Try to unfreeze the device, save it and see if it works better like that.

I see, well maybe this is just initially the case in Live if it comes up again I will try your suggestion, thanks!
