Poly help please!?

Hi there,

I’m a total newbie and I know that there’s so many questions about poly on the forum. Trust me I looked into it, but still, it’s like a blur to my now. I think poly is like the strangest thing in Max, a hard one to grasp.

I’m working on my own patch for a launchpad. This patch below is for the lights in the buttons to light op for a set duration. But I would like to press several buttons at the same time. Please help!!

Many thanks,

Makenote is already ‘polyphonic’, so there is nothing extra you need to do. I would say removing the gate and counter is enough to make it work. Give it a try.

Thanks a lot for your reaction johan!

I figured it out. You’re right, makenote is polyphonic. But my problem was in sending more then one massages to makenote. It worked out by poly to route to individual group of objects of the gated part. Could probably be simpler, but works like a charm.

Thanks again for showing my direction!
