Annoying poly~ issue
I have an audio signal (my guitar) routed through a poly~ where it is recorded and stuttered/glitched etc. I have a polyphony of 4 set for now (to layer 4 guitar loops), so inside the poly~ I have 4 stereo pairs of out puts. The signal is routed through the correct out put i.e. the output number corresponding to the target message sent to the poly~ buy using a loadbang triggering a thispoly~ opening the correct outputs on a gate~
So you select target 1, instance one of poly~ patch is loaded, bangs thispoly~ object which opens the gate~ for the first output. BUT…for some reason all the other out puts are still on. I’ve tried setting the target to zero and sending the gate~ a 0 message to make sure they’re all closed, but then after that when I go back to target 1 the gate doesn’t open. I have no idea why because I have used this exact system before and it worked perfectly! Any ideas?
Hard to say without a patch to look at. I’m using the same method without problems.

Not sure what you’re saying here. All voices are already loaded in the poly. Target 1 just tells poly to send messages to voice/instance 1.
I’ve played around with it but didn’t find anything unusual. When you load your patch and thus the poly with it’s 4 voices, each voice gets gated to it’s 2 stereo outputs. If you mute voice 1 then the 3 other voices are still sounding through their 3 outputs, as expected.
Not sure if I’m understanding what your problem is.
What my problem is, or what I don’t really understand is that when I press ‘1’ on the keyboard, selecting target 1 thus sending information to poly 1 the audio from my guitar is coming out of all 4 stereo pairs. By all rights should it not only be coming out of the first? Also once I have recorded some guitar into the buffer and audio starts looping, then it’s only playing form the first stereo output, which is exactly my desired effect.
I just don’t understand why the direct audio signal from the adc~ would be playing out of all 4 stereo outs, but the recorded audio just the targeted outs. It’s not really a problem as such, it’s just very confusing.
That’s because the audio inlet isn’t affected by the target x message. It always routes to all voices.
