poly~ as replacement of mute~

    Feb 11 2013 | 12:40 pm
    Hi there i just noticed poly~ replaced mute~ (i know i was lost into supercollider for a while...)
    now it says mute~ is obsolete and it's better to use poly~. In my case i have just a simple framefreezer subpatch does it make sense to use poly~ even if i have no polyphony? How am i supposed to use that? Any examples out there?

      Can we see your framefreezer?

      sure here it is, i'm building a chain of effects for live impro, so i would like to kill the processes when not used
      All files should be there..

      thanks for sharing - nice! I guess the applicability of poly~ depends on what you wish to do. I use it almost exclusively for polyphony but you can mute activity independently, down/up sample and other stuff. If you look at the helpfile for [thispoly] it describes how to mute/unmute individual voices based on a 0. or 1. signal or message.

      hi Brandan thanks for the help, but isn't it overshooting to use polyphony just to stop processing in a subpatch?
      I will try it and tell you if i have some problems..
