    Screenshot 2018-01-19 12.44.38.png Hello everyone,

    I am trying to figure out how to create a directional knob, and I've found that it's harder than it sounds.

    Basically, I have 79 tables. The idea is that as I turn the knob to the right, it turns samples on, as I turn to the left, it turns them off.

    As I've continued to ideate about it, I've realized that each number has to be assigned to a number (I am randomizing which tables play). So when I turn the knob to the right and we hit 0, it randomizes and plays sample 55. When I turn to 1, it plays sample 28, 2 is 38, and so on. However, when I turn to the left from 2 to 1, 2 turns off, When I turn from 1 to 0, 1 turns off.

    I've been thinking about this for a while now and have been creating a total mess of "moses" objects and "select" objects. I can't seem to figure this out. Any ideas about this would be incredibly helpful. Thanks everyone!

    I'm dealing with detecting monophonic signals, in this case a voice. I also want to capture the natural rhythm of human speech, record that information, and therefore have access to variable incoming speed of notes and so on. It needs to be able to detect natural speech patterns as much as possible and be able to replicate it (play it back through a speaker).

    Ideally, this would be set up in a place where there might be background noise, but the patch should be able to distinguish the main melodic content from just background static.

    Thanks for the recommendation regarding the window size! That is good information to know.

    Hello everybody!

    I wanted to get some advice in regards to using pitch detection using the "sigmund~" object.

    Essentially, I am trying to create a system that:

    1. Detects incoming pitch
    2. Records said pitch information
    3. Plays back its own tune based on received pitch data (variable)

    I'd like to emphasize that I am not talking about audio recording, but specific pitch in the form of midi data.

    I've done some tests by playing samples into the object, and I have to say that it's pretty decent at being able to pick up the main melodies, but it is hard to have it working reliably.

    Any further information or advice on pitch detection or any Pd objects/libraries I should check out would be tremendously appreciated.

    Thanks everyone!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm having a major issue at the moment. I just simply don't understand how to load in libraries into pd vanilla on my mac. As a pd-extended user, I've never had to think about this, but now it has become problematic.

    I downloaded 'iemlib,' (the library responsible for the 'any' object) from dekken. I have a dedicated folder on my computer for the externals, so I store it in this folder. In pd vanilla, I go to Preferences->Path and enter the path where all the externals are located.

    Now, when I try to load in the 'iemlib' library, it won't let me. I've declared it as 'declare -lib _pd-externals/iemlib' and it still refuses to work. I've tried going into preferences->startup, and typing in 'iemlib,' and it still refuses. I feel like I've tried everything that I could think of and I'm out of options here. I've been banging my head against the wall for the past few hours now.

    Can anybody please run me through this process? Looking at other tutorials on the forum haven't really helped.

    My operating system is OS X. Yeah I'm using Pd Extended. Haven't switched over to Pd Vanilla, but still have the same issue if I open it in that one too.

    Tried it. Did not work.

    Yeah, and the weird thing is that the "sample-#-curve' works just fine. I'm wondering if it's messing up the other one?

    Hello everyone,

    I am currently experiences issues in Pd relating to the xticks, yticks, xlabel, and ylabel. Essentially, this console window spews out all of this information as soon as I load the patch. I am not sure why it isn't working for the "space-curve" array but it works for the "sample-#-curve" array.

    Console:

    Actual patch which instructs to change the labels:

    Outside patch that tells my two arrays to loadbang. The "sample-curve" is the one that doesn't work:

    My arrays:

    I still can't figure out what isn't working properly. I've check and double checked everything and so I wonder if this is some kind of a bug. It's important to note though that it looks like it actually works. This is even more confusing. Please let me know if you have any ideas!

    Thank you!

    @LiamG No worries. Simply put, I'm trying to avoid popping and clicking. In my case, it happens when the loop is randomly told to stop playing without verifying that the playback is complete. So I somehow have to find a way to make sure that looping ends only when the playback ends without knowing when the stop looping message arrives. :)

    I've been banging my head against the wall for a while about this. I may just come back to it tomorrow. I think you have a point though that the select and float objects will probably come in handy.

    @LiamG The thing is that the tabplay~ is looping indefinitely. If I'm looking at what you wrote correctly, that would stop the playback only after one loop. The looper needs to be ready to stop at any second whenever the indefinite stop bang is sent out.
