No help file found for zeropoint~

Dec 05 2010 | 5:48 pm


I’ve decided to take apart the Loop Shifter device to see how it works. I came across a module, zeropoint~, in the playback engine that I didn’t recognise and tried to get help on it but got the error:

No help file found for zeropoint~

Anyone know where this module is coming from and if there is help for it? Google didn’t seem to have anything.

And there’s a number of other undocumented m4l related objects: ca1d, ls.central, ls.mono, ls.ratelag, midiselect, step.overplay. They might provide interesting solutions to ditto problems. Some are easy to decipher.

agreed. but midiselect is fully documented. and step.overplay really easy to understand (so i use it a lot in m4l!). i think if new objects are written for m4l, like those mentioned in this thread, as well as chucker~ etc, why not release them all the same way as chucker~? i took apart loopshifter a while ago as well. further explanation on zeropoint~ especially would be fascinating… it looks really useful. in the past on the forums the response has been "these were just put into C to give performance increases etc, not worthy to put in main distribution".
