slow attack from line object still experiences audio clicks!

Dec 17 2012 | 9:44 pm

Hi all,

I’m working with the attached synth, I didn’t build all of it but I’m puzzled why I’m still getting clicks when I change between notes from the number box above the keyboard.
I would assume the attack needs to be slower to simulate a fade, but even with a very slow attack there are still clicks!

Anyone point me in a good direction?

it’s because when a new note is triggered before the old one is finished you get a discontinuity in the waveform. What you want to achieve is playing more than one note at a time, called polyphony; you need to look at (study carefully) the poly~ object. Best to go through the poly~ help file and any relevant tutorials on making polyphonic synths.
