midi notes keep sustaining


    Sep 20 2010 | 9:24 pm
    hi everybody, i have a problem which is driving me near to nuts, what my patch does is take midi notes from notein then send the pitch data through a processing part which then manipulates the number and sends it out of the processing part to the noteout where it should meet with the appropriate velocity value. now this works whenever i'm playing single notes or playing slowly, but when i play a chord, often the notes don't receive the note-off and they get sustained. anybody have a good suggestion how to get rid of this problem? i try'd it with pack/unpack, but does'nt seem to work with alot of simultaneous notes. thanx alot.

      As you surmise the notes are probably not getting their proper associated note-off message sent. From your description it sounds like you're transposing the pitch of incoming notes, so you need to be certain that the note-off has the same transposition. And it sounds like any time you play more than one note at a time, the second note is changing the transposition before the first note gets a note-off sent for it. So to solve that you need to keep track of what transposition you give to each incoming note. Something like this.

      hi christopher,
      im really sorry i forgot to say i'm running max 4.5, cant load your patch. like you say there's transposing involved as well. could you explain to me shortly what objects your patch holds? thanx a million!
