Possible poly~ bug?

August 28, 2008 | 2:15 am

Hello, Attached is a patch I’m using within a bigger project. It’s four, four channel delay lines with feedback. I’m using it embedded in a bpatcher in the main patch. Problem is that when I send a signal to a certain target, it goes to all poly~ subs. I’m using a another similar patch within the main patch as well and that works fine. Although not using a bpatcher for that one.

Has anybody any idea why? hope it is down to lack of experience on my part…

Best
John

You didn’t attach the patch the lives in the poly~.

No, the target message works as expected here.

But you might consider to think about your whole structure. Why do you
put four delays into the poly~ and not just one? You can use the same
poly~ several times if you want to distinguish between several inputs…

For your presets, you should consider the use of the pattr system, as
your present patch can’t really pass all delay times into the poly~,
only one target will be addressed, as the preset only remembers the
values of your main patch…

Hi Stefan, thanks for checking my patch.

I was thinking I could put four delay units in one poly~ and distinguish signal inputs using target. I’ll try your approach it makes more sense now.

The preset is only standing in until I can make time to go and learn pattr family. Think it’s best we get acquainted now.

Thanks for clearing that up.

For simple storage needs autopattr is pretty easy to use. I have an
example, called PattrKitty, on my examples page – http://www.xfade.com/max/examples
