I've made a nice patch for secondary school pupils to learn how to play
live electronic music on a movie (what we call "ciné-concert" in french,
is there a word in english for this btw ?). It contains three stereo
sample players that can load, record, re-record, play, pitch and add
effects and save sets, all controlled by a joypad. I wanted to be able
to choose the order of the effects without having to load all of them at
startup and then rewiring. Plus i didn't want the pupils to see a single
wire, and the thing had to be modular and evolutive. Plus i thought
dynamic patching was cool and felt that it was the proper way to do it.
So now the patch can instantiate any of the 8 effects in any of the 4
effect-slots by sampler, and save this setting (thx to sssad) for the
next session.
In the end my biggest problem in this patch was not dynamic patching but
loading a sample into a visible array without audio dropouts, which
should be guaranteed to work and a legitimate practice.
