Having two buffers playing simultaneously in m4L? please help!

August 16, 2012 | 4:51 am

Hello all, I have a bit of a problem. I have this looping device I built in m4l that uses the Waveform~ object for selective looping and playback. I am currently, however trying to modify it so I can record into two buffers from one Live audio channel and crossfade between the two loops. I’ve tried accomplishing this by having two buffers and two groove~ objects hooked up to their respective waveform~ tables and separated by a gate~ object to control where the audio from the Live audio channel records into but can still only record into one buffer/waveform~ table… It appears too that when I try to record into one waveform~ table, you can see the other waveform table fill up with the same audio waveform!! No idea… if someone can help me I would be greatly appreciative!!!!! If need be, I can post up the code for the patch so you can all take a look– sorry its a bit messy.

Are you sure, that you gave the two buffer objects different names?

Look in the inspector for waveform~. There you can choose which buffer to reference. Or send it a "set" buffer message.
