I was wondering if it was possible to have control on the release length of a sample? Say a bass drum for example, and have it act like the sustain pedal on a piano?
-Is it possible for a sample to react like the [makenote]'s 3rd inlet appointed to time duration? (the amp's env. release)
I've tried with the bpfunction (acting like an amp env.)and of course the result was; you can shorten the sample but you can sustain it.
The other option I was thinking of was something to do with fft.
But fft stretches time doesn't it? This is extremely cool in itself, but the timbre result is always somewhat changed. Like vocoded.
(I won't pretend to master anything about fft, or even to know how to built a patch involving it, but I have been sort of grasping it general theory but more so it's use. In short, I've tried patches that incorporate fft. Granular, phase vocoder.)
Maybe putting an Amp. env. on a phase vocoder would sor of do it?
I also thought of a resonator and tried the [reson~] but not good results there.
Anyways, any help on this would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance
