Granulator Problem


    Jan 08 2013 | 7:18 pm
    Hi guys,
    Don't suppose there is anyone who can look at a picture of a granulator and have a guess what is wrong with it?
    I am getting an input, but no output.
    I don't even think it is recording :/
    Bit confused to why it isnt working
    Cheers,
    J

      Mate, if you post a screenshot of a small section of a messy patch, you are gonna get zero help with this.
      1. use the [meter~] object to hunt down signal issues; 2. use the [print] (or right inlet of the [message] object) to troubleshoot data flow; 3. post your patch

      thanks for the advice pal.
      I have cleaned up the patch
      hope this was better, really appreciate the help

      just glancing at it, you don't have any targeting messages going to your [poly~]; no-one can see inside the [poly~] btw, as this subpatch only exists on *your* computer

      nooby question, but what is a targeting message?
      Is there a way of posting a patch with the subpatches included? or do I need to post the subpatch separate
      cheers for the help mate

      With a target message a list can be send to a specific instance. However, since you use the 'note' message, targeting is not necessary. What is important is to free voices using the thispoly~ object inside the midget-granulator.maxpat. Take a look at its help file.
      Both the buffer~ and record~ objects have connections to a waveform~ but they don't do anything. If you want to see the content of the buffer there, send it a message 'set dathing' instead.

      right that makes a bit more sense, however you lost me with free voices. I checked the help file for thispoly~ but could not see how I can use it to free voices. I noticed the thispoly~ in the subpatch has nothing connected to the outlets, is this the problem?
      here is the subpatch
      cheers for the help jvkr

      Hi
      from the [thispoly~] helpfile:
      "You can also connect a signal to thispoly~ to set the "busy" state; when the signal is non-zero, the busy state is set, when it is 0, it is not set."
      This means the 0. or 1. signal (from [line~] will dictate when the voice is free or busy.

      care to upload the working patch?
    • Jan 16 2013 | 10:26 pm
      I will do of course! just trying to find out how to make a standalone! will it include subpatches and externals? or is that something that will need to be added myself? if so... how?
      cheers, j

      Just a heads up, this is the gesture granulator in action, will be uploading the patch very soon :)
      let me know what you think, I would really appreciate your comments
