poly~ inlet problem

Hello,

I don’t understand why only the first voice of a poly~ subpatcher receives the messages coming from the poly~ inlets.

Example:

- Open the poly~.help patch
- Click on the “voices 5″ message (bottom right)
- Click on the “open 1″ message for opening the first voice
- Change the “message/signal input 2″ numberbox. Normally, you can see a change inside the first voice (look at the numberboxes that are connected to “in 2″).
- Close the first voice and click on the “open 3″ message for opening the third voice
- Change the “message/signal input 2″ numberbox again. Why is there no change inside the third voice ?

Best,
-j

Take a look at the target message over in the right side of the help patcher. You need to send a target 3 message for that instance of the patch to receive the incoming messages. Apparently, poly~ defaults to targeting the first instance.

because the actual target is the instance 1 of your poly~. You gonna
have to send the “target 0″ message in order to be able to send a
message to every instances of your poly~.

thanks, actually I was wrong and thought that by default, the messages were sent to all instances
