audio poly~ worked in Max but not anymore in Max for live HELP

I can’t figure why, but a poly~ I’ve been using in Max worked pretty well but when I load it in Max for live, it’s like it was down-sampled quite a lot; it makes really bad noise.

Anyone had that kind of problem before?!

This is the poly:

The audio part is in the subpatcher audio. There is the problem.

Don’t forget to save the patcher in the same directory as my Max4live instrument…

The problem was coming from the fact that the computer was a bit short in ram when I loaded the sound files. Doing the same thing in Max did not give me these problems. It means M4L must degrade the quality (quite a lot) of the sound when the system is short in ram memory.

But, even after freeing ram space to run this patch, the sound’s quality is not as best as when I run it into Max directly…
