    Hi EyOne,
    I think I could sort some things out concerning my patch.
    I wonder if someone could help me to find out some more...
    I trigger some sounds in in sfplay with a percussive instruments. Now they just restart playing every time I hit the conga... how would it be the easiest to hear the whole sounds while I hit them, like they would be echoes of each other?
    I attached the file, if someone could have a look?
    thanks,
    tEdor

      Hi,
      thanks for replaying.
      I just use max in the school, so I can not save it now in another format, but I have not used poli~ just a peakamp~ and some sounds played with sfplay~.
      Is it possible to get sfplay to get something played until the end while it is triggered again and again...
      (sorry for my english:)
      I may should use groove for this kind of approuch...
      thanks

      Whether you do it with poly~ or some other way, you will need one
      instance of sfplay~ for each voice you require, so if you want to
      hear eight notes at once you will need sfplay~s. Yes poly~ is a good
      way to do this, bhut as always in Max, not the only way!
      Best

      Hi,
      I will have about four different sounds, all adjusted to a different threshold of the volume. So when I hit the conga in piano it plays sound one, mf=sound two, forte= sound three...
      Can I use one four sounds? I hit the conga faster then the sound finishes (in this case the sounds stops and starts from the begining). I am sure there is a way to sort this out somehow, I may need to use something like a buffer and groove... will try it!
      Thanks for the support!
