Poly~ differences in Max5 and Max6

Jul 02 2013 | 9:28 am

I come up against a "strange" difference between Max5 and Max6.
In Max 5 I can load a patch in a poly~ and then delete it from disk, it keeps on working.
In Max 6 my poly~ stops playing as soon as I delete the child patch.
Any suggestions on how to recover the same behavior than Max 5?
thx in advance

What I find strange is your desire of deleting the file that you’re using ;-)

FWIW I can’t reproduce the behavior using the latest version. Could you post an example?

@emmanueljordan : i was waiting for this kind of remark :D
Well the reason because i *have to delete my file is that i’m working with encrypted files (encrypted and decrypted via a java function). In order to load my crypted file, i need to decrypt it, load it in a poly~ and then delete it…
I’ll join a little exemple, which should be straightforward – simply a cycle~ inside a poly -.
Here, on the latest version of Max6, if I delete the child patch, sound stops.
On the other hand, on Max 5, parent patch keep on playing, even if i delete the child file.
