Dynamicaly changing the number of outputs in a poly~ ?


    Feb 19 2008 | 4:07 am
    Hi i have a poly patch within which i would like to receive independently the outputs for each voice .
    Is this possible ?
    I was thinking to use a gate~ object and use this poly to select where each voice's output is sent. However this doesn't solve the problem if i'd like to change the number of voices .
    Could there be a way to do this with send and receive objects ?
    something like send #0 that would send the outputs in to the main patch ?
    thanks for any help .

      I ran into the same question today while creating a patch to be used with an 8 speaker system.
      for now i solved it like this, should work for you too, i hope?
      the outputs of each voice are received starting from [receive~ a] up to [receive~ h] in my case (8 channels). any thoughts from more experienced polymaxists on the list on how to do it without using send~ and receive~?

      I cooked up a similar solution using send~. Hope it's helpful.

      yes, that's what I thought.

      i generally try to stay away from this pair. i prefer patch cords. so i'll go with your gate~ solution then.
      thank you klaas-jan

      Thanks for all your help guys .
      Indeed the send receive thing seems quite messy , i'll stick with the gate idea :)
      cheers
