I was having trouble with the first section of Tutorial 1: Basic Messaging. In particular, this section says it should appear on the Max console:
// Let's start by sending the following message 'synth1 1'. Connect the left
// most outlet of the gibberwocky object in Max to a print object, and then
// run the following three lines code and look at the console in Max:
synth1 = namespace('synth1')
synth1( 1 )
synth1( 'test' )
The message doesn't appear on either console for me. I have "Show All Messages" mode on for the Max Console.
The log you mention in the Patterns tutorial works perfectly for me. One note: the Max Console is mentioned specifically in tutorial 1, while in tutorial 4 the Gibber Console is simply called "the console". Since this is the first time it is introduced in the tutorial, it would be helpful to distinguish the two more clearly for new users. I kept checking the Max Console in tutorial 4 before realizing that the Gibber Console existed.
