Live Sampler for David's Garden

in Blog

12 April 2006

Just completed: a MaxMSP live sampler which loops material with crossfades.

One of the ideas David liked was being able to somehow have a few seconds of material ‘frozen’ to act like an accompanyment to material he could play on top.

Expanding on this idea, I built a Live Sampler Looper. It continuously records a signal into a buffer which is five seconds long. You then tell it how many samples to loop and it takes that many samples from the buffer and writes them into a new buffer. The contents of the new buffer is looped. A loop crossfade feature is available to remove large differences in amplitude at the begining and end of the looping material.

It seems to work quite well and is not CPU expensive.
