Endless recording into a buffer~


    Feb 21 2008 | 7:01 pm
    When recording into a program such as Logic or any other recording application, I can begin recording and let it record forever until I tell it to stop.
    Is the only way to do this in Max/MSP by making the buffer~ incredibly large, or is it not possible to make a buffer~ dynamically grow in size?

      For "endless" recording, you can use sfrecord~, which records directly to disk. If you then need access to this from within a buffer, just read/replace the file back in to your buffer~ object.
      Otherwise, set up a buffer~ that is longer than you will ever need to record into.
      Best, Andrew

      excellent, thanks for sending that! Thanks Andrew for the sfrecord~ tip. I forgot about that object, as is often the case.
