      James,
      This is pretty simply done. Closest in spirit to the original would be
      to have a buffer, of a size appropriate to the statement you wish to
      record (you could use a delay line instead, it's just a slight
      difference in interface).
      On the first iteration you'll need to manually start and stop recording
      into the buffer (using record~). Thereafter, using the output of record~
      to tell you how long the recorded segment was, the playback-rerecord
      cycles can be completely automated (which may be easier using poke~, YMMV).

      Select the patch code, copy, open max. new patcher, paste, or
      alternatively new patch from clipboard menu.

      There must be tons of these patches lying around. Below is the one I wrote for a performance at Manchester University last year. It was quite wonderful if I may say so. The patch is not completely authentic since it normalizes buffers to minimize accumulation of digital noise. It also requires a couple of my LyonPotpourri objects.

      Requires Linterp from Peter Elsea's LObjects (which is easy to find).
      But where does one get sfp? MaxObjects doesn't have an entry for it.

      Move the object files to where you keep third party objects. Start Max and it should now find el.buffet~.
      Hit the bang connected to the patcher "Start-Piece" and start talking into the mic.
      Good luck,

      Dear Eric,
      I found this patch of yours for the Lucier piece and it works wonderfully, thank you very much for sharing it.
      One question: is it possible to change the length of the sequence? I've poked around in the patch, and I can send a "size" message to the buffer~ changing its length, but it seems the sequence stays the same length. Is there another spot within the patch where I should be changing the length for it to work? Or maybe I'm just speaking too fast...
      Thank you very much!
