Please friends, I wanna know how to paste the capture~ values into a graphic buffer~ editing window to see how changes in the capture editing window affect the waveform.

All the best,

Somebody how knows how to use sample values and visualize them in [buffer~] graphic editing window?

check out peek~. You can write out the capture contents, read it in via text, then bang it out to peek~, adding an index number for each value with counter or some other mechanism.

Thanks Ben, do you know where I can find some good references about peek~, counters and that stuff?? How I separate different values in a .txt file to enter them with and index to peek~ and then draw that in buffer~?

there are lots of other ways to do this, but here is what I had in mind:

Thanks! It’s possible to listen that buffer~ content? And to manage larger amounts of samples?? I know that capture~ has a limit, but which is that limit or it’s depends on the computer?

Hi Hugo,

Yes, you can use something like groove~,play~, index~, wave~ or any other buffer~ playback object. Check out their help files.

capture~ will be limited by the amount of RAM that is available to the Max application.

Hi Ben, it’s possible to go beyond this RAM limit? A chain of capture~ objects maybe?
