strange discontinuities in a pattrstorage


    Apr 14 2011 | 7:40 pm
    Hi all, i try automating the preset change in time in a granularizer (here attached) using pattrstorage with some counter ... strangely enough the values create audio discontinuities, not due to CPU.. i don't know why because when i change all parameters manually this doesn't happen.. any idea? Cheers A

      I had this same issue a while back and it was caused because I was automating the mute functionality and every time I changed presets, it would flip them to mute and then set them to what I wanted. I fixed it by passing the changemode 1 flag to the pattrstorage. This makes it ignore anything that hasn't changed when you jump from preset to preset. Once I did that it stopped doing it.

      @jlegler,
      You sound like you may have the answer to my problem. I've created a massive patch so i'll just upload the bit i'm struggling with. I have created some [sfplay~] objects and created loop toggles for them. I then created two presets. The trouble is, if i set a file to loop then change the preset, the loop is toggled off because it is saved that way in the preset. How can I get the preset to ignore the loop toggle function that i have created?

      @Max Carter, I am not sure if I understand your problem. The example you sent seems to work for me which makes me think I don't really understand what you want it to do. When I set it to loop on both presets, it stays looping. When I set it on one and not the other, it behaves as expected. If the loops are saved a certain way in the preset, they seem to do what I would expect. What are you trying to do that I am misunderstanding? My post was referring to using pattrstorage objects to store presets which I have more experience with. I haven't used the presets much at all. That being said, if you can get me to understand what you want it to do I'll do what I can to help.

      Thanks for your reply,
      I'll try to explain a little more clearly. I want to be able to toggle the loop during playback so... if i'm playing a sound with preset 1 active and i then toggle the loop on, it loops (as expected) I want to be able to then switch to preset 2 with the loop toggle not reverting back to being off (thus ending the loop) Basically i have a whole bunch of loops that i want to be independent of the presets.

      AHH i figured it out!!
      I have to connect the third outlet on the preset to the toggle, button and g-switch to prevent it from changing (and also to the led as not to confuse the user)

      Hi all I am bit late to the party, hope you are still listening. I am having the same problem here: audio is disrupted when switching pattrstorage presets while the Live CPU load is fine.
      @jlegler: What mute functionality were you refering to? Is it the mute~ object or the mute message to poly~?
      Thanks!
