How to mute a Bpatcher in m4l device

January 21, 2013 | 10:48 am

I have a Bpatcher in a M4L device and the GUI of the bpatcher is a part of my device GUI.

I would like to turn off/mute the Bpatcher when not using it to save CPU cycles.

I read that mute is deprecated and using poly~ is advised.

However I can’t use the GUI if I use poly~ can I?

Any advice?

I guess putting the contents of the Bpatcher inside a poly~ is the way to go.

Not sure why I didn’t think of that before.

No no no don’t do that, use [pcontrol].

That’s weird – I thought from the docs it was only for midi but I just tried it and it isn’t.

Thanks! Pcontrol it is.
