How to tell when Poly~ is done loading?

    Curious about this - I've tried a few things but none of them seem to work great. Say I'm dynamically changing the number of poly~ subpatches loaded (with a "$1 voices" message) - what's the best way to tell when they've ALL finished loading?
    I was hoping it would be something as simple as a loadbang to an output/send - this of course bangs once for every voice, but the last bang should be once they've all loaded. Sadly this doesn't seem to be the case, especially with complex poly~ patches.
    Anyone have any other ideas? Maybe [thispoly] > [bang] > [outlet] would work better?

      It would be possible to keep a counter, however it appears deferlow would be fine as well. With larger patches that need to load sounds this could be different however.
      Edit: Maybe the deferlow should be after the loadmess

      Yes, that definitely helped! Thanks much.
