Thanks a lot for those. I learnt a lot ripping them apart and putting them back together – sort of ;)

Big thanks!

I wanted to implement the pitch shifting of frozen sound. Currently i am using gizmo~ inside your freeze pfft~ patch, but it is not very suitable for me due it does not accept signal as a pitch shift amount. Is there any other way to do this? I am thinking about recording a slice of frozen sound into a buffer~ (using count~ + peek~ for sample accuracy) and play it back continuously with groove~ @loop 1. But to do this i must calculate a period of frozen sound in which it makes a full amplitude vibration cycle (if there is any) and i don`t know how to do this not just by my ear.

I would really appreciate anyone`s help!
