Using poly~ with play~ -- should this work?

    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.
