      Hi David,
      Is there a way for you to make the patch a bit more tidy? It would make it a lot easier to find the problem..

      I encountered stuck notes recently with a simple sinewave instrument and poly/poly~. When single notes were released one after the other no problem, but when I released all notes at the same time, I was almost guaranteed a stuck note. So this might be a more general MIDI problem. I seem to recall several years ago encountering the same noteoff problem.

      Hi Mattijs,
      Well, here's a tidied up version which works. The ugly patching was mainly
      to filter out note data from particular channels. I should have removed
      I've tried a number of patch configurations. For example, using xnotein to
      send a note off message, or the flush object. However, none of them
      eliminate the stuck notes with the FM7 or Fm8. The only way I can get around
      this at the moment is to send a global disable command to the vst if it gets
      stuck and reinitialise it - not really practical in live situations, but the
      best I can manage at the moment. I also tried overdrive mode - again, no
      It is possible that this is a problem with certain Native Instruments
      applications - I think someone over the summer reported this problem with
      Absynth. This mighted be indicated by the fact that when a stuck notes occur
      the flush object does not send out a note off message if banged. I take this
      to mean that( as far as flush is concerned) the stuck note has already had
      its note off. I've reported this to NI but I can't expect them to be
      particularly MAX literate (they'll probably advise me to purchase Reaktor!).
      I have not encountered this issue with other vst hosts.
      Best wishes,
      max v2;
