compare two lists | audio patterns

November 8, 2011 | 12:02 am

Hi there

Currently working on a audio game in which the user has to repeat a given audio pattern ( the user in this case is deaf so when i talk about sound i actually talk about a tactile tranducer…. But am kind of stuck in how to build it.

The problem is; i can give a pattern a list f.e.
200, 400 1000 200 1000 , is a pattern.
And i want the user to repeat this in TIMING, how can i do this?
Most of my solutions end on my input. My input is eventually a bang or 1/0, i work with a microphone and threshold. So everytime you hit the table for instance a 1 can be generated, but i can’t compare a list that consists of only 1′s when the threshold has been hit. I don’t know a manner of getting the 0′s in that list.

Below is an extremely simplified concept patch that may have the logic that your looking for. You can have many sel objects to require certain moments in time to allow/disallow messages to pass through a gate. I used gswitch so that its easier to visually see the accessibility for the users bang to pass through.

Also, if you dont know about it, check out the object zl. Its an extremely versatile object that handles lists.
