[PD] Fun 5-voice multi-sample player (With Mellotron samples!)

If anyone is looking for a multi-sample player in PD....
I found this today and is very fun to play with:


Installation notes:

1) I had lots of problems grabbing the Mellotron library (server would drop
the connection). Be sure to use something like wget or FileZilla which
knows how to pick up a failed transfer from where it left off.

2)  There is a minor bug, a typo in one directory name, which this command
should fix after installing:

$ mv CombindeChoir CombinedChoir

3) This seems like a general purpose multi-sample player. With this patch
and with something like the OLPC Free Sample Library, you should be able to
have grand pianos, and an entire orchestra at your fingertips!

Now I know many PD purists eschew sample-players and prefer to "roll your
own". One thing I hope to do some day is to analyze some of  these
multi-samples and try to model & parameterize them for re-synthesis.

But for now, I'm having fun pretending to be Edgar Froese...


May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
