Today’s gen~ is a simple sample playback engine that allows you to specify sample duplication, skipping, and shifting. For example, you could choose a duplication factor of 3, so then each sample in your signal stream is repeated 3 times until the next. Combinations of duplication/skip/shift settings will create more complex playback patterns.

This one is hardwired to loop a sample from the Max folder. From here I think the next step would be a version for live input. Also a stereo version where the duplication/skipping patterns on the two channels are related in some interesting way (e.g. phased)
