avoiding clicks when changing sample startpoint

Oct 13 2008 | 1:51 pm

i’ve made this live sampler wich makes different strating points in the sampled audio to play with.
the problem is that when i play (when i change the startpoint of the sample) it gives a little ticks. and when i get loco and trigger at a very fast rate different start points the clicks get so present it gets very dominate. short version: its annoying.
how can i get rid of these clicks?

You need to create some sort of amplitude ducking or windowing.

A simple method would be to set the amplitude to zero using [line~] and a short time value, perhaps "0 10". Then trigger your new start point, then trigger playback and then use [line~] again to raise the level back to 1.

If this doesn’t clear things up then you could post the relevant part of your patch for me to look at.

i found out the grooveduck~ object in max 5 does this thing. it’s similair to groove~ but you can set the milliseconds to duck when changing the samplestart point.

im driving wave with a phasor and im having the same problems when i move the starter point of the sample. maybe some can be so kind and show me with a example how to avoid these clicks with line?
thanks a lot!
