Smoother triggering of audio with CV.jits.faces

Hey Guys,
I have been building this patch for a uni project, i’m quite new to jitter so not the best at understanding it, it’s is doing what I want it to do, apart from when cv.jit.faces recognises more than one face or partly picks up my face, it keeps re triggering the audio sample which I dont want to happen is there anyway I could stop this from happening, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

also note, that the [toggle] object, passes the integer its fed, to the outlet. if you send it 1 and then 2, then it show its is checked but actually at its output it send 1 and then 2, so the zl changes passes two different numbers each one triggering the [sfplay~]
so, there is your problem!

For info: I’ve mailed Jean-Marc Pelletier and he told me that cv.jit.faces doesn’t works on Windows7 64bit. That’s why it doesn’t track my face.
