]Curious about this too. Esp. MPE
There's a monophonic MPE block in the Toybox Free Pack

Is any of this polyphonic?
The outputs of the polyphonic blocks in the Nano Pack are monophonic, the blocks have a built polyphonic envelope and the voices are mixed down before they leave the block. There are blocks with full polyphonic connections in the Toybox Synth Pack, if you want to keep the connections between the blocks polyphonic.

Another way you can get polyphony in the Nano Pack is using the polyphonic MIDI in block, with this you can patch up separate a chain for each voice.

Here's cheatsheet showing a simple polyphonic rack using a Nano Pack polyphonic oscillator block, I'll post a link to download the rack later:

I've experimented a bit with "Nano Pack Community Edition":
It offers a wavetable module which is awesome.

All this for free, thank you!

It was the Mandela effect! They were the same! Just like it was Berenstain Bears, darn it!

Here’s a cheatsheet showing a simple workflow to globally control snapshots using the Nano Pack from your DAW.

You can use the snapshots to quickly create variations of a sound or patch, and then recall and sequence these variations for different sections of a composition.

The example in the cheatsheet is using Logic Pro, but you can easily apply the same technique to Ableton Live or any other DAW.

You can also select, duplicate and clear snapshots from your MIDI controller for live jamming.

This works with both the full Nano Pack and the free Nano Pack Community Edition.

Just wanted to chime in here to say I was fortunate enough to beta test the Nano Pack and it is staggering collection of blocks that truly extends what is possible to do in Racks now (aside from all the extended functionality, these blocks are very well optimized too). The cheat sheets are very welcome to give some context as to what is possible, congrats on the release!

Yes all Toybox packs are of incredible value...

Here's a new cheatsheet showing a patch that captures the input of the rack into a buffer, and then re-synthesizes it using the Nano Pack 'Additive Oscillator'.

You can download the patch here (requires the full Nano Pack):

when trying to download, a 404 error, zip not found... and yes finally the special stuff: additive!! (and spectral... will come.. i assume..). this will help a lot to get the basics, and use them to build additive wonders. me like additive..
