play~ & poly~ (poly silent on first round of targets)

    Nov 24 2009 | 7:59 pm
    I am not sure what is happening here. I have play~ inside a poly~ and it *almost* works correctly.
    1. I set the playback speed. 2. I set the buffer and bang info~ for the duration 3. set the line for playback (forwards or back wards) 4. pack than in a line 5. set target number with counter
    and send that all into the poly via (target $1, $2, $3, $4)
    should work right?
    I have the counter and poly set to 4 (so i can debug quicker will increase later).
    but the first four events are silent. Then it works fine.
    If i set the counter to 16 and the poly to 16. Then the first 16 instances are silent and then it works fine.
    I tried using thispoly~ in the poly, i tried it without. i tried prepend note & i tried using mute 0, 1 & mute 1, 0 i tried setting target manually i tried putting thispoly~ on a sig
    First round of events are silence. Then it works as expected.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I been banging my head against this all week and have tried everything i can think of. I am desperate to get this going so i can get on to the next thing, but i just do not see what is wrong with this patch.

      Sounds like there might be an "order" problem. Are the bangs/messages sent in the correct order?

      You are right. It was an order problem. I've since fixed it and few other things and it now works like a charm (though play could sound nicer ~_- ). It was something that was encapsulated and hence out of sight. I should have gotten the order sorted out and then did the clean up.
