I've been using play~ to play back sounds loaded into a buffer~, and
have discovered that the sound quality seems to be a problem. The
playback sounds like it is being slightly ring-modulated, or that it is
showing the effects of a sample-rate mismatch. In any case, to test out
the problem, I tried playing the buffer back with wave~, and the issue
did not occur. I am driving play~ with a line~ object, and thought that
that might also be the problem, so I replaced the line~ with a phasor~
but the problem persisted.
The attached patch demonstrates the issue. Load a 1 minute stereo sample
in the buffer, and then turn on the DAC. Both play~ and wave~ will
playback simultaneously, but you can x-fade between the two to hear the
sound quality difference. Any insight as to why this might be happening
and what I could do to prevent it would be greatly appreciated. Many
thanks in advance.
