Looping with sfplay~


    Apr 26 2006 | 5:51 pm
    Hi there,
    I am making my DJ patch still and have finally come around to the loop and cue system. The patch below is a new patch I hae started just for this because the one I had written in the main patch did not work and looked very messy (meaning I could not source the fault). I have now got a loop and cue system working, but when I turn off the looping it plays through the loop and then playback stops.What info. or signl does sfplay~ need to exit the loop and continue playback seamlessly?
    Also, for reasons I do not understand, the "cue point 1 set" bang doesn't always trigger value object to send the current time to the message box below, why is this and how can it be fixed?
    Also how can this work with the file playing in reverse?
    Help Please!
    Heres the patch so far:

      Hi Jay,
      I just wanted to tell you that all the answers to the questions are in the help file, but I think you need an answer to a question you forgot to ask... (sort of)

      Everybody would assume you would stop it as verybody else does: switch of the toggle which sends a zero which stops sfplay~...

      The answer how to stop is clear, the real question I think was HOW DO I CONTINUE...
      You're already close, bang before you stop a snapshot at the position outlet of sfplay~, use a cue number 100 for example to store the stop position, then send 100 to continue...
      You could have a look at my St.ools collection, I made some abstractions with this technique, copy it and use them at your will...
