I've read about both of these, but I can't see the difference, [vd~] is a variable delayline reader, but I can vary the point at which [delread~] reads a delayline in real time with a number box.
Can anyone else offer an answer?!
\[vd~\] and \[delread~\], what is the difference?
[vd~] updates at audio rate, so you have smoother, click-free variations. It also uses 4-point interpolation, so when you're, say, moving the read point back resulting in a lower pitch, you don't get the quantization noise. [delread~] is meant to be used as a stationary delay line.
If memory serves, you can use vd~ if you want to pitch shift the delayed signal. vd~ can accept a signal in it's inlet delread~ does not.
Though, I haven't used delaylines a whole lot yet, so someone else may correct me.
Thanks, I'll have a look into it, I think vd~ might work better in my waveguide than delread~ , I am getting a lot of clicking when I move the input and output position on the delayline using delread~
