audio stalling whilst buffering.

Mar 01 2011 | 10:23 am

hello all,

got a question to ask, could not find an answer so am asking out.
making a sampler for a friend who will use this tool for live use and any other use he sees fit. built up the sampler well, but when loading a sample into a folder when it is running, stalls the audio for a second or two.

obviously this has to do with big samples, short ones are not bad but can still notice a minor stall. but is there a way to speed up the buffering process or a workaround for this. i am using [waveform~] as well, which i do feel has something to do with it.
but was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on how this can be fixed. thinking of changing the [waveform~] and maybe using [multislider] instead for viewing the audio

I haven’t try this, but what if you handle all loading in a [poly~] I’ve read somewhere this doesn’t break the audio chain, so perhaps this will also work for loading into ram?

ah ha ha ah ha. makes sense. never thought of that to be honest. will try that out later tonight, see how it goes.
