Re: EDP question/etc.
> I wonder how you treat all this in Kyma?
Hmmm, we covered a lot of topics. I'll try to respond to each.
1) I don't see any need to initially record in REVERSE.
2) I've thought a great deal about pitch-shifting, tempo-shifting, and
pitch-tempo-shifting. Kyma already has several ways of doing this so, for
the time being, I'm using them. As a design theology, I'm trying to
only new features and capabilities.
3) I'm trying to eliminate the need for an auto-undo. At least as I
understand the concept. I've got the undo working for overdubbing and
multiply. I have not implemented INSERT yet, though I have a scheme that
should work. (I've been too busy writing "foundation code".) As you know,
a true INSERT requires that the looper device is always recording. Say
a loop has been recorded into buffer A and it's being played back. As an
implementaion of INSERT: a) the looper is recording internally from buffer
to buffer B. b) If INSERT has not occurred by the time playback ends, we
discard buffer B and replay buffer A. c) Upon receipt of the INSERT
(during playback), the playback from buffer A instantly stops but recording
into buffer B continues with real-time audio. Upon release of INSERT mode,
playback from buffer A commences from where it left off, again recording
into buffer B. At the end of buffer A playback, we commence playback of
Actually, I rather like the blinking of the EDP's UNDO LED! But then I
really like blinking lights. :)
