Hello! looking for a little guidance.
I have an audio file, a field recording of nature sounds with lovely blips of birds and other intermittent animal calls.
Imagine a timed sequence cycling through the clip, so that every 1 second (or however long) it hops to another part of the file. At every switch, a new short clip from the one file. Might be a kind of cool and rhythmic way to shuffle through the recording, almost like a beat but not quite.
Here’s where I’m at:
probably can random-number-generate a start point (I guess I’ll have to pre-load the amount of samples the audio file has first though?)
should be able to trigger the switch using metronome (to get that nicely moveable tempo, too)
What are your thoughts? Is it doable? The file is pretty long, is readsf the way to go?
By the way, using the basic Pd-0.48-0
Thanks a ton!
