new version of sfmarkers~ - WAVE loops recognized


    Jun 02 2006 | 9:07 am
    Hello,
    after a suggestion by Torsten Belschner (see his recent post), I added to sfmarkers~ the ability to return the loops defined in a WAVE file. You can download this object at http://users.skynet.be/crfmw/max MacOS only.
    Conceptually, I'm not totally convinced by the way I implemented this: loops are considered as regular markers (with predefined names 'beg loop' and 'end loop'). But this is the way loops are saved in AIFF files by some softwares. Beside loops positions it could also be possible to get other 'sampler' informations like loop type (forward, backward, ...), pitch, tune, etc. (I just need to add a couple of C lines in my code :-) but I don't know if this should be sfmarkers~' job. If there is some interest, I could add an outlet to send these 'sampler' informations, like loops. But as in AIFF files, loops are more often saved as markers than as loops per se, I'm not sure it's the best option... Because AIFF and WAVE are not consistent, I can't find any consistent solution. Suggestions are most welcome!
