how to make a delay as long as a minute?

March 23, 2010 | 4:44 pm

Hey hoping someone can help me!

I am building an effects proccessor in Max with each of these proccess being activated by differant sensors i have attached to an electric violin. One of these sensors is to control the delay. what i was trying to do was use the sensor to activate the control to come on as a switch type thing but then playback what it is i want delayed about minute later. Ive tries using tapin and tapout but not sure what way to make this delay in minutes.

Check out the [tapin~] and [tapout~] help files. You do delays in milliseconds. There are 1000 milliseconds in a second, so 60,000 milliseconds would be one minute.

Make sure the buffer for [tapin~] is large enough to handle that long of a delay.
