Poly~ differences in Max5 and Max6


    Jul 02 2013 | 4:28 pm
    HI,
    I come up against a "strange" difference between Max5 and Max6.
    In Max 5 I can load a patch in a poly~ and then delete it from disk, it keeps on working.
    In Max 6 my poly~ stops playing as soon as I delete the child patch.
    Any suggestions on how to recover the same behavior than Max 5?
    thx in advance

      What I find strange is your desire of deleting the file that you're using ;-)
      FWIW I can't reproduce the behavior using the latest version. Could you post an example?

      @emmanueljordan : i was waiting for this kind of remark :D
      Well the reason because i *have to delete my file is that i'm working with encrypted files (encrypted and decrypted via a java function). In order to load my crypted file, i need to decrypt it, load it in a poly~ and then delete it...
      I'll join a little exemple, which should be straightforward - simply a cycle~ inside a poly -.
      Here, on the latest version of Max6, if I delete the child patch, sound stops.
      On the other hand, on Max 5, parent patch keep on playing, even if i delete the child file.
      thx!
