seperate oscillator outputs

    Jan 23 2007 | 4:29 pm
    Hi, I am trying to build a synth, which I have made good progress on but I can't seem to get the oscillators to sound individually: I have to turn them both on with the umenus that go into poly~ to get a sound. I think the problem lies in the way I have set the in objects to the oscillators but I don't know.
    I want to be able to play notes with each oscillator individually and select if i want to use one or two oscillators to make a sound. Any help would be much appreciated. I have included the patch so you can have a look.
    Thanks for reading this.

      I'm transfering from a Mac to PC to send on the net. Anyway here is the text version. Host patch first then the synth. Thanks.

      You need to send target messages to be able to change the different synthesizers individually. Look at the help file

      At the moment I can't select one oscillator and play it with my keyboard. I have to select both oscillators from the umenus to get a sound. And this means i'm using two oscillators to produce a sound. How can I play one oscillator while the other is off? I need to create some kind of mixer with a balance control but at the moment i am struggling to do this.

      This is more a matter of personal style, but I would probably set
      things up so that all the necessary information to sound a single
      note would be sent as a list with the "note" message prepended. My
      list would include everything I needed to make a single note. That
      way, you can do a better job of keeping track of what is sent to
      a given voice, use target 0 for anything you need to do globally.
