Looping Functions

Dear all,

I’m trying to modify the patch below so that it will alter the tempo/pitch/volume of a spoken voice. Please can someone help me with the following problems…

1. When using the function graphs, if I set the time domain of the tempo graph to the length of the audio clip, and then slow the tempo, the audio gets cut off. Is there a way of setting the domains of the “pitch” and “volume” functions so that their domain is the same as the output of the “tempo” function??

2. When I load clips into the patch, the loop conitiously. I’ve tried to set up a trigger for the functions so they play when you press “re-trigger”. When it does play it plays through once and then loops with whatever the last plots in the function graph were. Is there any way to either make the function objects loop along with the sound file or disable the sound file altogether?

Thanks in advance for your help,

mr B

hi mrb,

you’re missing a poly~ abstraction here.
if you’d like to include it i can take a closer look.

fwiw, i am not sure which particular subpatcher qualifies as the ‘tempo function’.

Hi Jml,

The Poly~ patch is above.

The tempo function object (in the original patch) is the graph on the left, whereas the middle is pitch and the right hand one is volume.

thanks for your help

Mr B
