Suggestion: Loop Function for [mtr]

Oct 28 2008 | 11:34 pm

Hi, just a suggestion to C74 for something that seems like it would be useful to me: the ability to send [mtr] a "loop" message, so that play automatically retriggers itself when done. Doesn’t seem like it would be very complicated to code and would save a number of objects from cluttering a patch to perform the same function. That’s all, much thanks.

post from 2 years ago but still a good idea to have a loop message ;-)

If you play back using "next" you can route the -1 duration value to trigger a loop, but it would be much better to have a loop function built-in.

You can also record automation in other ways and store as matrices/"video". It’s not as simple to set up as [mtr] but there are a ton more playback options, not the least being speed etc., you control the playback just as you do a movie. Maybe even some fun things to do with jit.FX to your data…
