Poly synth

May 18 2011 | 7:19 pm

Hello! I’m new to Max and also kinda desperate…
Can someone help me to connect this synth to my patch? It should be connected with the melody but i don’t know how! And i can’t understand why poly~ has no outlet! even if i paste dumbo inside it, the outlet won’t appear and this is not working!
Please HELP!

Hi Tomoyo,

First and foremost, search the forum. Maybe you can’t find a direct solution to your problem, chances are you will find a patch you can dissect to find the answer.

Now for your problem – Create a new patch, paste all the stuff you want your synth to have, save this as "dumbo.maxpat", put it in your searchpath. Create a new object in a new patch and just type in [poly~ dumbo 16]That’s it.

There is some other stuff wrong with your patch though (don’t worry, been there too)

– the correct message to line is [1, 0 1000] (from 1 to 0 in 1000 ms). Yours would run from 1000 to 0 in 1000 ms, your speakers won’t like that.

– You didn’t name your buffer "airhorn"

Good luck,

Check this out,

mmh…maybe it’s me but i don’t hear it…the other one i made, if i open alone it plays, but it doesn’t play in the whole patch…i don’t know what is the problem…i opened yours as well but no sound came out…and i still can’t figure out where i should connect it to play together with the melody… T___T

You scale the volume down by 0.02? Try increasing it :) I’m starting to suspect you didn’t create the patch? Copying stuff to learn is ok (not always ofcourse) but when you copy make sure you understand what you’re copying. Again, i seriously recommend studying the max-tutorials and the baz-tutorials.

i made it on my own but i took an exemple from a patch my professor explained me! also this doesn’t work for me! also the meter isn’t showing me anything! i changed the volume parameter but anything changed!
i’ll study those tutorials, thank you. enjoy your day.

If it still doesn’t work there must be some other issues going on. Issues i probably can’t help you with. Do you have audio from max in general? In the extra’s-tab (of any maxwindow) there is an audiotester, see if there is any response there. If not check the DSP-status window, see if the right drivers are selected.

Again good luck,

Just saw this, it’s awesome
