Endless recording into a buffer~

Endless recording into a buffer~

When recording into a program such as Logic or any other recording
application, I can begin recording and let it record forever until I
tell it to stop.

Is the only way to do this in Max/MSP by making the buffer~ incredibly
large, or is it not possible to make a buffer~ dynamically grow in
size?

For “endless” recording, you can use sfrecord~, which records directly
to disk. If you then need access to this from within a buffer, just
read/replace the file back in to your buffer~ object.

Otherwise, set up a buffer~ that is longer than you will ever need to
record into.

Best,
Andrew

excellent, thanks for sending that! Thanks Andrew for the sfrecord~
tip. I forgot about that object, as is often the case.
