End Position for Audio File Player

I have been using your audio patches recently and find them to be the best for QC I have found since yet.

However I would like to ask of one feature in particular, specifically of the Audio File Player Patch. I am trying to set queue points for tracks and the "starting position" input works great. I would like to ask for a customizable "end point" that would end the track, or loop it from that point.

Re: End Position for Audio File Player

i have a audio player that i am using with qc in an application context. it outputs the the current time of the audio file that i use to drive a movie player patch. i got to clean it up and put it into a patch to share.

for the time being i think it may be possible to use the v002 movie player as an audio player. it i believe has time input and outputs that you could use to loop with etc.. I'm not at home and am installing Xcode right now so i can not check for sure. obviously you would have to turn your audio file into a movie and forget about the image data.

if you know your at what time you want to loop you could also use a stop watch. trigger the stop watch when you trigger the audio player patch use a conditional to test for the specific time you want to loop then set position when you hit that point.

My first though was to yes, use the V002 movie player to do this, in junction with the bangnoise sampler patch. However, I found it only samples and loops the video, not the music.

And the stop watch seems like a good idea, I will look into that one for sure!

I tried the stop watch and that worked great. I had the result of "limit" trigger a # multiplexer that would reset the current position at values very very close together.

You may have to put in your own track, if the one included does not transfer. It's a little rough, but it does the job.

The end goal would be some sort of beat matching, and looping certain bits - beat matching being the tougher part. I was thinking if it was possible to integrate a track with a waveform that you could drag along and specify where to cut, queue, etc
