poly~ Tips and Workarounds

  • The target message can be sent to any inlet of poly~, and it affects how all poly~'s inlets route messages.
  • Typically you can downsample a poly~ containing a reverb patch, since high frequencies are not particularly useful for the reverb effect.
  • If you scroll a number box to set the number of voices in poly~, you should add a mousefilter object between the number box and the "voices $1" message box, so that the number is sent only when you release the mouse.
