Hey i noticed that my midi keyboard has an oscillation effect which makes notes that i hit sounds kind of like a siren.. (this is true for 2 or more notes) but if i hit a single note it does not do this oscillation.
I tried it with the midi patch i have made, as well as the midi patches available through the max tutorials.
did anyone come across this? can anyone give me suggestions on how to fix it?
I think the sound is distorting due to summing full-scale signals. If you add a [*~ 0.3] after the [cycle~] object in each [patcher midi] then you’ll hear amplitude modulation without crunchy distortion.
By the way, (and apologies if you already know this) there’s a subtle but important difference between [patcher midi] and an abstraction [midi]. Tutorial 15 gives more detail.
hey i tried what you suggested.. unfortunately the oscillating effect remains.. I’ve narrowed it down to this case: when two notes are being played from the same channel the oscillation occurs.. so i believe the error is somwehere in the [patcher midi] but am unable to locate exactly where..
edit: when i meant channel i meant in the [patcher midi] you can see the signal splitting into multiple channels, if i have 2 notes from the same channel this oscillating signal comes.. other wise the signal is a stable tone (even for chords).
