maybe you guys could help us guys over at the Ableton forum figure out how to use Max/MSP (Max for Live) to prolong the tail of small samples using resynthesis?
There are a variety of ways to do time stretching without changing pitch (i.e. elongate a tail).
You could use FFT to create a phase vocoder. There is a phase vocoder example in the FFT chapters in the MSP Tutorials. There is also this article on building a better phase vocoder in MSP:
Or see Jean-François’ FFT/Jitter examples for ideas for how to build a phase vocoder using Jitter:
Another time stretch technique you could use is granular synthesis. You may want to check out this thread:
Also, there is a third party external for Max that actually uses the same time stretch algorithm as Ableton:
Great advice man, I really appreciate this!
Have a great day!
infinite reverb with a long envelope is a personal love of mine to extend too short envelopes, but that might be too artifical…;-)
Don’t suppose you got a demo somewhere?
Tonight is premiere of Salomé in Stuttgart, I’ll look for it later and create a little M4L device…;)
Good luck tonight then!
Wow. Our first official Max for Live cross-list patch grovel. The hammer’s right here – who’s got the golden spike?
