phasor~ and shuffle/swing

Oct 11 2009 | 12:55 pm

I know there a few post on the list but I can’t find a solution.

I’m looking for a way to implement a shuffle in my audio ramp from phasor~. I don’t really need a count, but it will be nice for future implementations.

What are you guys using for this purpose?

Any help will be much appreciated!

Oli Larkin has made a nice (Mac) external for this – see this thread:
It’s in the attachment of his second post, and there are plenty of other good suggestions for implementing swing in the thread,

thanks for the hint, I now this thread, but the external from oli is not working well.
When you change the bpm rate or the shuffle it gets very inaccurate. I talked to Oli but at this moment he has no time to fix these.

well, there is another try on the post (crx091081gb)
Is someone using this patch? I can’t get it work.

Nobody needs swing?

Thanks a lot, also for the clear explication!
This patch gives some nice swing variation.

One thing I get a bit confused: If I want to use a time signature f.e. 3/4, the swing resolution has to be eqaul to the note value, right? In this case, swing resolution = 3 ?

Hello mate,

OK… yeah, you can mod my patch to change the time signature.

Basically, to get a standard swing timing, you should be sending a number that is half/quarter of your number of quarter beats into your swing res, but using your number of quarter beats to change what the ramp counts to (you can see these changes in the top right).

It’s a nice piece of patch, thanks for sharing.
