I'm new to the forum - so hello everybody - and new to max/msp... but i've spent some intensive time learning it recently.
I've come across a problem I can't get around, concerning the combination of poly~, midinote and voice stealing. Pasted below is an example patch of my situation. In the main patch, there are two examples side by side: a poly using note to trigger events and the same poly but using midinote to trigger events. I'm looking into using midinote because I'd like to add velocity control for each event. But I'd also like to have voice stealing enabled. When using note there is no problem; one can fire many overlapping instances. But with midinote and voice stealing it only fires once and the next (overlapping) trigger steals the first even with the poly set to 6 voices. Is there any way around this? Or another way than midinote for passing velocity info with each trigger?
Any help to understand the problem and to get around it is greatly appreciated.
So here's my main patch:
