The start of a cycle in waveform


    Jul 27 2006 | 2:57 pm
    I am using waveform to randomly jump around the start and end points of a sample but there are glitches. Is there any way of making sure that the start and end points are always at the start of a cycle?
    Thank you

      that would require some sample accurate random jumping...
      another possible solution:
      if you are using groove~ as your playback object, you could use that
      right outlet to drive a little wave~ object refering to a windowing
      envelope stored in another buffer~. this envelope would have a very
      fast fade-in at the beginning and a very fast fade-out at the end...
      no clicking, no popping... well ...unless you randomly jump halfway
      through the windowing envelope...

      Not exactly, but: Check out the grid+snap subpatcher of the
      [waveform~] help file. You can find zero crossings with this feature,
      which might give you what you want. - David
