piano note when opening patcher


    Oct 11 2011 | 11:36 am
    hey,
    every time i open my patcher, i get a short piano note. i checked with 'midi monitor' and there are no midi messages coming in from any other devices.
    i'm working with poly~.
    Guess it's difficult to answer without having the patcher, but the patcher is too big to have a look at it.
    maybe somebody just had the same problem and could tell me what might be a solution.
    thanx so much
    cheers

      Maybe some loadbangs are to blame? Obviously it's impossible to tell without seeing it.

      I've experienced the same effect. It was simply caused by a live.numbox connected to makenote.
      Remember that live.* GUI objects send their value when the patch is loaded..

      thanx so far...
      i don't use any live or makenote objects....
      the loadbangs on the other hand could be a problem....

      One way to find out is to copy your file somewhere else, open this temporary file and just start deleting [loadbang]s or [loadmess]'s and see which one is the culprit.
      But yeah, it's hard to tell without looking at the patcher.

      Also use arguments whenever possible, like [gate 1 1] saves me oodles of [loadmess 1]'s in a patch.
      For a tight wad of things a loadmess with a list in it followed by an unpack can reduce them too.

      thanx to everybody.
      it works just like that like u said: removing objects till it stops. that's the easiest way i guess.
      and yes, i found out the [gate 1 1] thing, too a couple of weeks ago. it makes definitely things easier ;-)
      have a great week.
      cheers
