gen~ in poly~ and variables


I would like to know if there is any kind of sharing of gen~ data among voices when a gen~ patcher is within a patcher loaded by poly~.

Thank you in advance.

No there is not. Gen variables are local to the parent gen instance and work fine in poly.

However, depending on your gen code, gen in poly is a bit of a nightmare as gen is not yet voice management / loading aware, so if you have many voices and / or a large gen patch, the parent poly will take ages to load and switching on dsp will also take ages.

Best thing to do is click the export buttom and compile an external with the resulting code.

You can actually share data between gen~ using buffer.

Yes, if one can accept the latency, as buffer~ can only move data between poly instances at buffer intervals…so the data needs to be delay queued to sync it, too.
