Tap In/Tap Out 1 sample off?
Is this still true for Max 5? I am trying to use it for a fractional-delay filter or would I be better off with an external?
Yes – as far as I’m aware it is true that delay~ and tapin~/tapout~ give an extra sample of delay *WHEN* the delay time is driven with a signal (I’m not 100% on the case of a float/int). You can compensate this of course. Thus in contradiction to raja’s post you *can* set a delay of 0 samples, but you can a delay of one sample, and so on.
The workaround is trivial if tedious….

(the above will work for any sample rate – the [adstatus] variable could be almost anything that will trigger if audio is restarted…
The reason for the extra sample concerns the method of interpolation and although I reported this a bug c74 do not feel this way – I see their reasoning, although I wouldn’t have made the same choice. The reply I got was that it was not going to change….
Oh – of course – fractional delays of less than one sample are not possible, unless you are prepared / able to delay the rest of your signal path by one sample to end up with the correct relative delay..
tapin~/tapout~ introduce one vector size of delay. The extra delay of one sample can be caused by floating point precision.
1 – can you confirm with patch that tapin~/tapout~ ALWAYS introduce one vector size of delay? This is not my experience at all…
2 – Yes, of course there may be floating point imprecision converting from milliseconds to samples. However, the sample delay I was talking about is NOT caused by floating point imprecision, but is additional to this. This is easier to see in the case of delay~, where there is no conversion happening.
You’ll find 2 examples which show that there’s always a minimum of one vector size of delay. In the second example you can clearly hear the difference when you change the number of samples of the vector size.

@ej – ah I see – a minimum of one vector I know about – sorry your post implied one vector plus the required delay….
Thanks for clarification.
Thanks for all your help guys! Much appreciated!
