The new program has a file of playdata associated with each sample set (unlike the old one), so playback can be configured in a more flexible way. Trouble is I don't have play data for all the old sample sets. So I wrote a tool to save endvalues to the play data file while listening to the sample - this should speed up the creating of playdata files for the existing sample sets, now just have to trudge through them creating the files.
Tried to get the record sequence to work well with the imic as interface -failed. Managed to improve it slightly by tweaking the values... but it's not really good enough. Needs to be stable so that the performers don't get confused.
Think that there is too much noise on the interface for it to tell the difference between 'digital silence' and the open line. Have the feeling there are other problems too: it seems to be more latent than the mbox, making the triggering feel slightly confusing. Also it sounds like there is quite a big increase in the noise floor when I play back the sample (high end hiss), so the noise is going down to the recording.
Feel kind of like I'm out of time for fucking about with it as well. Might just get the physical side set up using an mbox. It's not elegant, but it works, and it wont look that bad.
