Best way to draw lines + active block in a waveform~?

December 9, 2012 | 5:48 pm

I’m making a beatslicer, and i’m wondering what the best way is to draw the divisions as lines in the waveform~. I see there’s a grid that seems to be doing what i want, but those gridlines seem to appear/disappear based on the size of the waveform~. Is the only other way to put a drawing canvas on top of it? And i have the same question for drawing an ‘active’ block on that division-grid (an alpha colorored block above the active part of the sample).

This may be a convoluted way to do it, but it your used pictslider and had the image be a tall line, you could layer these on top of waveform~ and get the slider position easily. I’m not sure how it will look. The only other option I can think of is using jsui and writing your own gui.

I did it using a transparent lcd and making js-calls to it.
