Delay time changes without pitch changing?

August 23, 2007 | 2:17 am

Howdy, was just messing with the tapin and tapout objects by sending random delay lengths to the tapout, is it possible to do this without changing the pitch of the audio?

I wish to send random delay times in real time somewhat like that Jonny Greenwood patch I’ve hearrd so much about.

Thanks in advance…

Hi Ross – ah, the wonders of the inter-tubes, eh?
Go to maxobjects.com and look for the term VDB – that stands for
Variable Delay Buffer and it’s going to be awesome.

Cheers,
Andreas.

cool thanks, wasn’t able to make it sound that musical but I’ll continue experimenting

You may try to cut the sound while changing the delay time (using amplitude envelopes and sample&hold modules for example) or use two crossfaded delay lines

if you’re talking about the ‘go to sleep’ guitar effect then it would probably be easier to record to a buffer and pull out random pieces here and there than use a delay…

I don’t think so, Robin. VDBs to me are the simplest tools in the world
- no buffer recording at all, and it has the "click-removal" part down
already. Horses for courses, I guess :-)

for that sound, is he constantly filling the buffer the whole time and
playing back bits of whats been recorded, or does it just keep
rewriting a smaller buffer and pulling bits out of it randomly(random
start/stop/lenght?)

does anyone have a patch of that sort of thing?
