cc2 - week 06 - music and signal processing

i thought it would be fun to create a melodic synth using variable length buffer playback.

so using the groove~ object, and converting midi pitch to milli seconds to control loop end point, bob's your uncle.

issues this time were, needint to set up the groove~ to loop continuously. and setting up the modulation via the receive~ #2, it took a bit of magic to get max to recognise. I actually had to create a second receive~ with the real name, before the argumentative one would work... the first time I've actually caught Max out with such a blatant suddenly it works manouevure !!

i would have liked to use the note on to trigger the loop from the start, this would have made longer loops potentially more interesting, however it did not eventuate.
