Sound occasionaly distorts – unknown cause


The patcher below is meant to create rotating sounds over a stereo output with a fragment taken from a mono recording buffer.

Sometimes the sound is much distorted, sometimes it isn’t. I cannot find the cause of this problem. I suspect there might be a problem of insufficient resolution in some object somewhere.

Any idea ?

You’ll need to use the attached abstractions to run the patch.

Thank you for helping.

Best regards,
