fun 2d.wave but come clicks….

Feb 28 2013 | 5:03 pm

I been messing around with this 2d.wave patch from long ago. … and it is fun and works great but it occasionally clicks and I can’t seem to track down the clicks. Maybe another pair of eyes can see it. It clicks a lot more when the phaser is set low. I thought it would be the gate~ objects but that doesn’t seem to be it since it clicks even when gate is not on the move (Though changing gate~ to matrix! would be the easy fix.

fun though, right? haha.

The trapezoid~ object is probably going to be a friend to you, I expect. Is this something like what you had in mind?

I don’t know what’s happened in the copying process, but half of it is missing…
However, it looks rather familiar, and indeed I believe it was originally been one of mine.
It was some time ago that I shared it, and so I’m sure l’ll have made some improvements to it since then, but generally 2d.wave does tend to click like a bastard, and there’s not a lot you can do about it; it’s in the nature of what you’re asking it to do here, and that’s why it works best with percussive material where you can ‘hide’ the clicks,

A search reveals that this is indeed by roger. Sorry to have not credited you with the original engine. Nowadays i copy the URL in if i grab something off the list. I probably worked on this a LONG time ago. I have a lot of trouble with 2d.wave but I was goofing around with this and loving the sounds and wanted to at least minimize the clicks. I am indeed using some percussive stuff but when I get loooowww in pitch is when you really hear the clicking. There is a trapezoid in there but i will have to looks again… crazy fun patch but like stutter 2dwave is a beast to smooth out.
