[Feature Request] Observing the Beat Repeat repetition led

Post by julienb » Wed Oct 10, 2018 12:43 pm

Hi there,

I had expressed that request one time here (a long time ago. 2011 I think) and on centercode but I wanted to collect your opinions about that.

We are all interested by using Live (and Max for Live) with other creative field like visuals, physical computing etc.
We can already analyze signal, using tools like ZSA.DESCRIPTORS Jourdan's library, or other kind of sound analysis state of art routines.

When I enable some beat repeats, I'm interested by tracking the repetitions.
Because I know how to do that on the signal analysis side, I can do that. It can work well, but not perfectly.
But I know a BUNCH of friends don't know how to do that.

Having a specific property we could observe in Beat Repeat devices that could feed us back with the information of repetition would be MAGIC.
For instance, at each time the repetition occurs, we could convert this as a bang and glitch our visuals, triggers something else (a sound?) etc.


If you are like me, interested by this, let's give that thread a bunch of shares, views and comment :-)

I made a video shuffler device several years ago which was based around the buffer shuffler.
I fed it a timecode signal and analysed what happened to it.
Total hack but it worked!
Maybe you could set up a dummy/mirror beat repeat device and try a similar method?

Yes. We could build a new one. But that's not the point here :P
