Most efficient wave envelope changer


    May 01 2006 | 1:35 pm
    I have to use a 144 of these objects simoultaneously in Poly~ each pumpin out several frequencys/numbers a second. Basically every few milliseconds 144 cycle/phasor/square objects are triggered simoultaneously in Poly so I need something very efficient to change between the various waveforms. What would you reccommend as the most efficient/cheapest way to change between waveforms ?
    Ive tried several methods including analogue but they are quite expensive.......

      you can make another poly~s inside the poly~,
      that is always the best way to turn stuff off
      and on.

      analogue? never heard of it.
      matrix~ should do it, its claimed to be faster than selector~ and you
      can add ramps if you need to.

      Cheers. Analogue is an external but a wee bit expensive. The matrix idea is a good one, but how do you turn off the cycle object completely when for example you switch to the phasor object ? even though you dont hear them they are still running ! I tried mute to no avail....

      instead of using difrent objects for waveforms, you could use only cycle~ objects reffering to a buffer~, and then replace the buffer~ with the wanted waveform~. i.e. a ramp or square or whatever...
      Mute should work fine, another option is to put the Oscillators inside poly~'s and the use the mute message for poly~...
      as Roman says, you can have several poly~'s inside other poly~'s and this is the most efficient way of doing this.
