Midi File Buffer?

April 16, 2006 | 8:04 pm

Hello everyone, I’ve been using Eric Singer’s seqplayer object, and the detonate object to do some midi sequencing. My question is, is there any way to store midi files in a sort of buffer so that they could be recalled without having to stop and load them? Something like the buffer~ object for samples, except for midi files? Is this even possible?

Any input is greatly appreciated

thanks

Craig

Does it have to be MIDI?

Lots of people have used coll in a variety of ways for storing almost
any kind of sequential structure. The waveshaping demo in the
examples folder is one, um, example.

Even cooler, IMHO, is ice.lattice from iCE tools. More visual
feedback, switch between multiple patterns stored in a single object
with a single message, easily play backwards/forwards/otherwards, and
much more…

Just two ideas.

Best, Peter
