Poly~ Windows Explosion!


I’m having an issue with poly~ based instruments. If I edit the patch used by poly~, or a patcher within this patch, then Max opens up a version for every instance poly~ has created. So I’ll instantly get like 32 new windows I don’t want. I don’t like this behavior and was wondering if there was an option to shut this off, or maybe a way around it? Thx.

If you’re on mac and enable expose, it’s enough for hours of fun. The issue is most likely, that upon save, the window of a sub patch remained open. When instantiated a number of times inside a poly~, one for each voice opens. What you should is open that patch that you load, close the window and save.

I think that was it. I had a subpatcher open last time it happened. Thanks, I should be able to avoid this now.

To Cycling74: Please ask first before opening a ton of windows.
