preventing clicks with poly~ in steal mode


    Jun 07 2006 | 10:23 pm
    Sorry, i'm sending this without the patch, it's just too big...
    Hello again,
    it's easyly noticebale that my diploma is rapidly drawing closer, my
    posts increase...
    In my project there's a poly~ running a timpani synth (4 voices only,
    but complex ones...). Now as at some points i need to emulate a roll, i
    activate steal-mode. So, to prevent clicks, the envelope generators in
    each voice work in a way, that they generate a ramp to 0 in 10 ms
    before triggering the actual envelope - in order to prevent clicks. But
    still im getting audible clicks...
    Any ideas on how to get rid of those?
    I'm massively grateful for any help, as i'm soon gonna crack up with
    this

      If you utilize adsr~, there is a legato message...
      Or just crank up the number of voices to 12...

      If I were going to overlay a bunch of graphs in max I would probably first
      translate the graphs into Jitter Maxtrices, as video images perhaps. Then
      using video mixing objects I would composite or blend the matrices together.
      If I were using a non-jitter max machine, I would convert the graphs to
      lists of drawing commands, then use LCD to display the graphs as line
      graphs. Then would make for each line/graph/layer to be a different color.
      If I knew anything about the javascript gui stuff in max, (I don't) I would
      maybe try to use that to do multilayer graphs.
      There are probably several other ways to do this too...

      Hi Langdon,
      thank you for the prompt advice!!
      The LCD option sounds really good.
      I will try it out and let you know.
      Bye,

      If you look into FTM and Gabor (a free download):
      there's an object that can display five curves at the same time,
      ftm.vecdisplay.
      FTM and Gabor can be a bit convoluted to get started with, but there are
      a lot of abilities for analyzing, synthesize and tweak audio in Gabor in
      ways that are hard to achieve else way. You could check out the help
      files of Gabor to see if it might be worth investigating further. FTM
      also have a mailing list here:
      Best,
