hello list,
hello miller,

is there any known way to dynamically change the number of instances associated 
with a clone object, e.g. via message?
i know, the dsp graph would need to be rebulit, but for a project i am 
contemplating that would be less of a concern.

hi, hans !

you are aware of the "messages to PD" examples ?

afaict they are not mentioned in the latest official PD release, but i attached one exmaple from PD-extended, that's still valid and documenting this feature. this way you can easily change the instances of a clone object, simply by deleting it and creating a new one with the right arguments.

if you put your clone object as a single item into a subpatch, it's just a "clear" message and a "obj ... " message to the subpatch.

coming from MAX/MSP (where this object is called [poly~]), my experience is that assigning a new number of voices via a message does pretty much the same thing: it clears all former instances and reloads the new instances, all loadbang messages sent anew, no values are kept.

so i guess (while i too would appreciate a "voices" message for [clone]) in the end the result would probably be pretty much the same.

but mind you, this is no in-depth knowledge, just personal experience

best

oliver
