Hello rackheadz! <OT_INTRO>Facebook is damn toxic. I forgot the forum. I feel ashamed</OT_INTRO>
I am searching for a way to resolve a thing that popped into a patch I am working at. Is there a way to construct a boolean condition like
IF [condition] THEN [do something] ELSE [do something else]
The practical problem is that I would like to skip to the next sample once the playback is finished, using the cf player (or any other player, for all that matter).
I’ve tried with AS Steps, Launch Gate, Kill Gate (counting how many steps it take every samples I used in the patch), with ML_Modules switches and in a lot of other “colorful” but very inefficent ways involving the bridge rectifier, the zero (from Animated Circuits), the “not” logic function…
There must be a solution out there but I am banging against a wall.
After all it’s a matter of triggering an event when the signal from the player stop (yet I’ve tried when the voltage is zero and it does not work, of course).
I can’t think of a way to accomplish what you want using CF Player because that module does not emit a trigger when the sample is finished (usually labeled EOC or End of Cycle in other modules). NYSTHI samplers do have EOC trigger outputs, but I don’t think they allow loading a directory of samples.
At first, I answered that it was totally ok but then I realized that you are right, complex simpler do not allow to load samples from a directory so I would be forced to find another way to solve the thing.
Yet it is absolutely interesting the EOC you brought to the surface! It is something I didn’t know about and now I can focus on that, also, so thank you very much!
