because i am still on a G4, and my patches have a tendency to become
"heavier" and more complicated (and use more CPU), I use more and
more [mute~] (and [pass~]) when running my patches.
a few questions about [mute~]
_[mute~] only works when being on the main patch and directly
connected to the subpatch it is muting (putting [mute~] in a subpatch
doesn't work). OK, it was noted somewhere else on this forum, but is
this still valid? (I am on max 457 - any change on 4.6, intel???)
_when switched OnOff, [mute~] sometimes produces a click at the
output (heard through the output of the patch). A solution would be
some sort of trigger, muting/unmuting the audio OUT of the subpatch
first/last. But since [mute~] does not output anything (printable at
least) how could i do this? the patch and audio out could be
different sub-patchers, so the question is how to mute different
subpatchers in a given order?
_I mute all my sub-patchers at init-time (and de-mute them when
needed). I usually send an "init" message first, then switch the dac
on. In the case of [mute~] does it make any difference if i mute
with the dac on or off????
