First attempt at synth getting crackling

January 6, 2012 | 9:33 pm

Hi brains,

So I’ve made my first attempt at creating a very simple synth in poly~ and I’m getting a crackling as a note is held or played. I don’t really know where to start and exhausted myself getting this far :P An explanation of the fix would be most helpful or just pointers in the direction of a fix. I’m struggling a bit with MSP/synth stuff so some of it was lifted from examples or help files which ideally later I’d like to avoid.

It’s meant to sound out of tune :D

I only looked at this for a minute:

Your envelope params are only going to the first voice. poly~ should either have the @target 0 attribute, or get sent a target 0 message to.

Your frequency goes below the audio range, which could be perceived as crackling.
