You just need to fade out the sound gradually rather than sharply cut it off. If you shut off the waveform when its positive or negative you’ll get a click. Probably the simplest way is to use matrix~ like this.

Perfect! Thanks for the help, I am only about 6 months in with MAX, so still some blind spots in my knowledge. Thanks a lot for you help, it’s weird getting helped by people whose albums I own!

The text explanation and simple demo patch in MSP Tutorial 2 might be of help to you regarding clicks. There’s also some possibly-useful information regarding FM synthesis in MSP Tutorial 11.
