I have a student who is trying to do seemingly reasonable things with waveform~ and running into troubles. Has anybody built something better?
Specifically, he’s setting up a grid of BPM’s and carefully offsetting it to make sure it falls on the beats of the soundfile (all of this info is predetermined on a per-file basis). Unfortunately, the user can drag the labels and grid to the wrong location. I thought I could make it snap back, but offset is relative to the current (and unknown) position. The label area of the waveform only reports on mouse down, as far as I can tell. This is still an issue when edit mode is “none.”
Turn the label off maybe? That turns off the grid. And, the grid doesn’t come back when you turn the labels back on. (I’m doing this using waveform~.help on Max 4.6.3)
This sounds like a job for a clever jsui. Has anybody already made this and is willing to share?

waveform~ is great on paper, but not so reliable in practice. Time

Maybe put the waveform~ in a bpatcher and use offset to hide the label area??

Thanks. That is, at once, brilliant and horrifying.
I’ll see if I get excited about writing a new one js, or if I just hope for something better in Max 5.
