poly~ as replacement of mute~

February 11, 2013 | 12:40 pm

Hi there i just noticed poly~ replaced mute~ (i know i was lost into supercollider for a while…)
now it says mute~ is obsolete and it’s better to use poly~. In my case i have just a simple framefreezer subpatch does it make sense to use poly~ even if i have no polyphony? How am i supposed to use that? Any examples out there?
Cheers

All files should be there..

Hi
thanks for sharing – nice! I guess the applicability of poly~ depends on what you wish to do. I use it almost exclusively for polyphony but you can mute activity independently, down/up sample and other stuff. If you look at the helpfile for [thispoly] it describes how to mute/unmute individual voices based on a 0. or 1. signal or message.

hi Brandan thanks for the help, but isn’t it overshooting to use polyphony just to stop processing in a subpatch?
I will try it and tell you if i have some problems..
Thanks
