need some starter pointers.

Hi. would anyone have a look at this patch with me?

I really don’t know what I’m doing, If anyone could offer me some pointers I’d be really grateful. I’m new to max and trying to learn as much as I can by following the tutorials but I cant seem to get this patch to work, or figure out what I’m actually doing.

It’s just a little “looper” I know what I want it to do but even though it’s just a basic start it’s already being unruly, sometimes it loads and works, loops audio etc as it should other times it just refuses.

I want to make playback cursor scroll over the waveform whilst also snapping to the selected areas made using the range slider (it’s easier to use this in presentation mode) and I also need to set the resolutions of all the sliders, range slider automatically to fit the length of the sample in the buffer upon loading, otherwise the selected areas of the waveform wont accurately correspond to the displayed waveform.

Ideally I’d like the faders to remember their last saved state as well, instead they always load fully down, not where I left them?

Here’s some additions to your patch, to get you started; it’s incomplete, because you will need to resize/reorientate the playback slider if you plan to also use [rslider] for ranged selection, and I haven’t time at the moment: look at my beat-slicer and stutter looper patches here:
