hey thanks a ton, David!
I have a couple questions... the array seems to write for only the first couple minutes (I'm seeing 4e+06 in the number box under the soundfiler tied to the read -resize pretty consistently for longer files. shooting for ~20 minutes)
also for louder clips I'm getting clicks during transition. I know there's a way to write in quick crossfades, just not sure where to put it in the patch. is that what the delay 50 is for?
by the way, the "loop" feature is SO handy. what a great thing to add.
oh, plus the "grain" slider ! it rocks, what exactly is it doing? seems like its corralling the picks either closer or father from the last pick. what’s that called?
Cheers and thanks again!
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!
So here's where I'm at!
I've seen pure data work with great success rearranging midi notes as a sequencer, but its always timed to a metronome.
I'm hoping to load in ~40 .wav files, each anywhere from 2-4 seconds long (they are clips of short phrases from a speech) so that the patch rearranges them, maybe randomly, and creates a new version of the speech - the hope is that its basically unintelligible, but retains the melody and rhythm of the speaker... but I’m running in to a couple roadblocks.
First - how do I load that many audio files into pd? I’m assuming its going to be with tabread, not readsf…
Second - how do I line them up so that the end of playback of the first file triggers the start of playback of the second, then the third, etc?
It doesn’t matter really the qualities of the sequence, whether it randomizes the files themselves and ends when its over, or just picks randomly and plays back infinitely… I’m not picky!
PS - all the audio will be cut from the same source, so they’ll all be structurally the same (same sample rate etc), just different lengths. I’m using the basic Pd-0.48-0 on a Mac.
