Here is the patch that I have been working on for the past few months. OverBlast is a sampler sequencer that will be used as the UI for a DIY midi workstation with a Raspberry pi. And now with a lot of help from people in this forum I have been able to play midi sequences from midi hardware which was a huge step in its development process. Boy let me tell you learning puredata has been an experience that taught me to learn from the headaches and appreciate the highs. lol

In its current state I have been At this point there are a few known bugs. listed below.

Known Bugs

  • Sample Editor - Truncate btn dose not work correctly. saves whatever is in soundfiler buffer should clip start and end positions.
  • Sample Editor - Loop playback toggle dose not do anything at the moment. sample will automaticly loop.
  • Sample Editor - When start and end positions are adjusted the patch will crash the next time the sample is played or looped
  • Sample Editor - Loop playback toggle dose not do anything at the moment. sample will automaticly loop.
  • Sample Editor - Time stretch dose not to any thing. pitch slider will only changes the pitch. Time stretch should take in account the pitch and bmp to make it a true time strecth.
  • Sample Editor - Loop playback toggle dose not do anything at the moment. sample will automaticly loop.
  • Sample Editor - Export as Wave dose not do anything at the moment.
  • Sequencer dose not work.. WIP contains only ui design
  • Song builder does not work. WIP contains only ui design

With that said if you wish to play around with this patch it will more then likely crash while using the sample editor if the start and end positions are adjusted as there is still work to be done with it. The only thing that works in the sample editor is the sample recorder. You are able to record sample and import them to the sample editor to be edited but you cant actually make edits yet.

So why release the patch in this state? Well i could use some feedback and peoples thoughts on the workflow. And simply if there is anyone out there that is interesting in lending a hand in its development. What can you do with it?

You can load samples to the mixer and play sequences from your midi hardware. Record samples from a mic to the sample editor and play them (Dont adjust the start and end positions) it may crash.

Again the song builder and sequencer do not work they are simply ui designs. Be warned if you are going to dive int he sample editor is very messy as it was when I was doing the majority of my exploration/noobing into puredata. I have been slowly cleaning it up. :)

I should mention you can learn midi notes then save them as a preset the pad controller is fully functional.

Sadly I cant make a video my laptop locks up when I try to use obs or xsplit. :(
