Here's what I have set up:
A drum machine sequencer running with all the audio running to dac~'s as well as all the audio running to a left and right writesf~ thing that I can use to grab the audio, sort of like using a looper pedal. I hit a key to prepare it to record, another key to start recording, and then a third key to stop recording and load that recorded audio clip into a looper thingy.
My problem is when I hit the third key in the series all the audio being output sort of cuts out for half a second (maybe even less than that, but it is enough to be noticeable) Eventually I would like to be able to grab a loop of the drum sequencer and start it looping seamlessly.
I know this probably isn't the most technically correct explanation, but it's the best I can do at the moment. I just wanted to know if there was something I am not aware of when using writesf~ and arrays and soundfiler. I know the clip needs to be loaded into the array which I assume takes some time, even if it is only a fraction of a second. Also, the length of the recorded loop is not set, so perhaps that causes problems too. I guess it's ok to be a little sloppy, cuz otherwise it'd just sound too perfect.
