I'm working on a patch that will run either in Max or as a standalone (depending on if one works better than the other) that will record audio continuously for one year. The patch will run on a dedicated computer and will basically just record audio (no signal processing), though it will use jit.uldl to periodically upload an html progress file for remote monitoring.
The patch will break up the recording into 1-hour chunks, something I've done before to record long performances with no problems. All my short-term tests seem just fine.
Should there be some kind of built-in reset for patches that are meant to run continuously for a long time? If so, what?
As in the send/receive patch mentioned above, anything to avoid using? I plan to strip the patch of all number boxes, etc, though it needs a little of that to monitor progress.
