Sample Slicer based on transient recognition

November 22, 2011 | 11:59 am

Hi guys,
i’m goin’ to do a sample slicer based on transient recognition.
Can anyone give me some suggestion about useful objects to do the transient recognition part? ( bonk~ ? )

Bonk is real time no? So if you want to slice a sample I’m assuming you mean a sample loaded into a buffer. So try Alex Harker’s descriptors object.

thanks for the info rodrigo.
i supposed to use bonk on a "temp" buffer then store its results in a coll or something like that to give the groove object infos on where to play the buffer. but your suggestion seems something to investigate seriously!
i’m on windows 7 so i think there are no official release of the Alex’s externals for windows. Actually i think he sent me a beta windows version.
Can you describe briefly what exactly the descriptors object does?

Yikes. That’s a tall order. It does an absolute ton. (all analysis stff in realtime and non realtime). I’m trying to use it to do something not too dissimilar (buffer analysis stuff), but even though the help file is pretty comprehensive it’s a massively powerful/open object to get your head around.

thanks rodrigo!
i’m investigating the descriptors stuff. it’s quite amazing!
thanks to you and to alex harker that coded those jewels!

I’m not sure if it’s just the functionality you’re after or if you’re actually looking to build your own tool for it but this does what you’re describing:

Hello. Can anyone tell me if Alex Harker’s descriptors can find a song bpm with offline analyses. Thank you.
