Is my middle name “von stupid” or is this really true?

Hi good people.

I’m trying to build a standard sampler.

Is it true that you need to use the polybuffer to be able to use ADSR

As I can understand through my google expedition, I can’t not just put a simple adsr after or before my sample got trigger.

I will like to know how a can do a amp adsr for my one hit samples?
Or if you have a link to a video or something.

Thanks a lot.

Hi good person,
The answer would be no, depending on what you mean by "standard sampler". If you’re referring to the [adsr~] object in Max, then you can place it inside or outside the [poly~] container for multiple instances of your mono-sampler patch. If you want a global ADSR envelope, place one inside your mono-sampler and then use the (target 0) to poly for each of the ADSR values; if you’re referring to the new [polybuffer~] object in Max, I don’t use it, sorry :(

Two excellent videos explaining the basics of poly synths in Max:

Thanks so mush for your help.

But I simply don’t understand how to put a adsr / amp env on a sampler.

The way I "wish" to do it is.

Trigger sample -> adsr/amp env -> and out comes a sample with a slow attack and long release.

I don’t get it ,, sorry……
