Device Overview

Name/Version: fp.Reverse 1.6.1
Author: eltnet  
Description: Real time reverser using [tapin~]-[tapout~] trick with a freeze mode.

Actually, with the straight mode and feedback, you can use it to repeat and freeze the sound like a stutterer. The name should be "fp.Repeat" with a reverse mode. :-)

v1.6 is more accurate and I added an Attack Decay envelope.

very good.
but it has 2 max num boxes (buffer and length) that better to replace by live num boxes.

Wondeful patch- clean, clear, and functional. Inline comments would be appreciated for those of us just getting a feel for max/msp (as well as to help elucidate some of the controls), but that's of course secondary to quality, which you've already got covered =).


@aton : for length (multiplicate) you can't change range of a live num box, so i used a max num but you can use automation. for buffer i don't remember why... maybe there's no reason. :-)

@nonagon : yep, even for me it could be useful sometimes to remember what i did after months...

This is the dogs of an effect, straight into my standard template, just what i'm looking for, map a joystick to the pitch paramter and it sounds wicked!


The length and buffer zeroes out (0) if I save and go back to the project.
To bad, if not for that bug it would be a standard here.

it doesn't do that on my system. strange.


I've been experiencing the same behavior since I first downloaded your patch. Unfortunately this makes it pretty useless for me.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you discover the source of the problem on our systems.

beautiful :)

"The length and buffer zeroes out" bug is corrected... :-)

new update is wicked! :)

O-la-la! Have to try it out asap!
Great job!

great stuff!!!

bug?: sometimes settings are lost after restart(every 5'th time or so)...
i saved a preset with my settings(pitch+-64...) in live for fast reload of instances. but it would be cool if i hadn't have to check it on every startup. :)

@hgt - what parameters are sometimes wrong ?

does what it says and does it WELL! thank you

Great device! Only thing is I have to press the Reverse button every time I want it to work. I use it in one of my return tracks as standard template and would love not to worry about pressing the Reverse button every single time. Would it be possible to fix that?


@SimonR: didn't you put "FXinGate" function on ?

@eltnet: Sorry for late response. No, I never touch that function. Reading back my post, I think I didn't make myself clear. What I was trying to say is that I have to press the Reverse button every time I load my Live set, because somehow the device doesn't save its parameters when saving the set. I'd like to use that effect as a Send effect, but every time I load a set I have to press the Reverse button for it to take effect because upon loading a set, it will always load at its default preset. For another set, I'd like to start with the "Thru" button on, but that doesn't save neither.

I'd really really appreciate if that could be fixed because I love the device and haven't found any better yet. I use it a lot for jamming but unfortunately, this makes it pretty annoying to mess around with.

Thanks! :)
