I used gate~ 8 with 8 different pfft~ objects and their different sizes hardwired in. With matrix~ you could avoid the clicks too (I was just experimenting so it didn't matter). I don't know if having multiple ones are a problem processor-wise since only one is active at a time, perhaps someone here knows? With the gate~ of course you can have the drop-down, which was nice.
It was definitely cool to try out the different fft~ sizes on different samples, with wacko values of sig~/speed and gizmo~/pitch shift, it was pretty insane what a basic sample could be mangled into... a snare hit sounded like a totally distorted space-violin, great stuff!
yea, but wouldn't it be great if pfft just accepted a message to change the fft size. Anyone know why it doesn't? Ill take the click for the simplicity of a message going into pfft to change fft size/overlap, and write a patch using poly (as described above, thanks!) if I don't want the click. Maybe in next version?
"yea, but wouldn't it be great if pfft just accepted a message to change the fft size...Maybe in next version?"
That is for me one of the most annoying things in Max...why can't I simply change the fft size and overlap factor with a message? I want to make a Max for Live device, based on pfft, and i really don't want to have loads of pffts inside, with all the possible permutations of fft size and overlapping factors...
