can scansynth be polyphonic?

August 23, 2010 | 9:43 am

Hi,

I wonder if it is possible to make scansynth be polyphonic? I have been trying to hack the help file to scansynth so that I have several tones playes at once and also, if I have a long lasting tone and tap a new tone on the keyboard, I want the previous tone to ring with the new tone … is this possible?

Thanks,

ana

Of course its possible, its even better in a poly~, as the object expects a vector size of 256. I’d put even a monophonic scansynth~ in a poly~…
The other way is to use the poly object (without ~) to control multiple frequencies, as a single object can do it. The result would be very different to the usual polyphony…
