Using poly~ with play~ — should this work?

November 2, 2013 | 12:07 pm

Hi all,

I’m having my first outing with the [poly~] object and I suspect I might be using it for something it’s not quite intended for. I want to input a bang and have it trigger a [play~] object so that the poly functionality plays the same sample overlapping itself rather than restarting itself. Should something like the following code work as the contents of a [poly~] patch? If it should, any ideas why is it not working for me?

Play~ is fine, but perhaps it’s the way you’re targeting poly~ that is incorrect.

I’d recommend watching this baz tutorial on a polyphonic sampler:

There’s something wrong with the "mute" messages…

Should work this way:

Oh, brilliant, the Baz tutorial shows me exactly where I was going wrong.
