starting poly~ in muted state???

    Apr 27 2010 | 11:37 am
    is there any way of having an instance of a poly~ muted when a patch loads? something like an @mute 1 argument would be perfect...
    the patch is a BPatcher, meant for handy switch-cpu-on-and-off for all my patches. (not posting any of the subpatchers here because they're irrelevant for this question i think)
    i'm currently just sending all my poly~s a loadbang message to mute them, but it's not working, so when i turn audio on just after loading, the CPU is huge and I have to turn them all off manually.

      you don't need to send threadcount 0, it's the default behavior. IMHO, the simplest way of initializing mute state is to have a loadmess mute 1 connected to a thispoly~ object within the poly's abstraction.

      thanks guys. i'd forgotten all about thispoly~ for some reason... that sorted it.

      if you loadbang it to muted state, it will not turn on, as loadbang comes before signal.

      @raja: yep basically if you don't do anything it will create as many thread as you have cores.
