keep note on after a change

Hi,
I have just started to learn max/msp and I was toying with make a simple synth controlled by a midi keyboard. But I have noticed that if I play a note and then change a note before my envelope finishes, I get that nasty clip sound.
Can anyone suggest a way that I could keep the tone going until the end of its envelope rather then it clipping out when I play the next note? I suppose I could use a reverb-like delay or polyphony but I would like to take one step at a time.

Cheers,
Jason

ADSR~ will do this for you. Using the legato message, or you could
just use poly~. You could also use borax to tell you how many notes on
are being held. If it is more than one, use a second envelope that
doesn’t have an initial value (i.e. the first point is at 1., 100 msec
into the envelope). You can make it just like the first, but erase the
initial 0.

I’d also like to put in my request for another example in the
poly~.help file; it’d be nice to see something like the poly~ example
that’s tucked away in the adsr~ file (except polyphonic). Right now,
it’s not immediately clear what poly~ might be useful for. (and this
would be helpful particularly to people starting out)
