Trying to record internally within patch

Oct 29 2012 | 3:03 pm

Hello all. I’ve dragged myself back to MSP after a long hiatus, and i’m a little rusty.
I’m trying to capture signal out of cycle~ and reprocess it within the same patch as audio, ostensibly for doing dome granular synth stuff. I tried running cycle~ into record~, then buffer~, but i’m not getting any throughput. Any ideas?

with the [record~] object you are generating a new sound file which resides somewhere on your hard drive, which needs manually loaded into the buffer; for realtime buffer-filling most people use [poke~] and [count~]. Here’s a start:

Nonsense, record~ records to a buffer, not the hard drive.
There are msp tutorials on recording and playback & the objects help files. For further assistance its best to post a patch (edit -> copy compressed)

Apologies to the OP, I temporarily confused [record~] with [sfrecord~], but thanks for taking the time to point that out grg without addressing the OP’s question, as I did in my patch.

Apologies for being rude – I blame the captcha eating my initial reply.
Still, the info OP needs comes with Max, seeing where the problem is is so much easier when seeing a patch.

You’re quite right; the helpfile for [record~] has everything needed. And learning by doing is also best.
