MIDI looping

    Apr 28 2006 | 11:39 pm
    Hello, I'm working on a patch and I'm having difficulty thinking of a way to create a part of it. It's probably fairly easy, but I would like to be able to play pitches on my keyboard/other MIDI device over a period of time (4 measures for example) and have Max loop these 4 measures as long as I would like (maybe using a table or something?). I'd also like to be able to overdub/change these values as it is playing back. I only need it to store one value, pitch (0-15), as I am only using it to trigger samples.
    It would also be nice if I were able to store the values of this "sequence" into a coll or other data storage/preset type thing so I can recall different sequences that I've played.
    Any suggestions as to how I could implement this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.

      take a look at the 'mtr' object.
      or, if you're feeling frisky, seq~ is great. but it's going to be a little bit of a jump to start thinking about signal-rate control...
