Simple effect which lets you instantly freeze or slow down the input signal via a gate input. The buffer is 441000 samples.

- Fixed some occasional clicks on gate on.
- Added "Joey Mode" switch. When enabled, the buffer is always traversed forwards. When disabled, the buffer may be traversed backwards as the speed value is decreased.

Thanks for the feedback Joey I will hopefully get to it this weekend. I also noticed that in some cases there can be some small clicks produced on gate on/off so i want to also fix that

This is really interesting. I have a small suggestion for how you manage speed adjustments in relation to the read ramp counter.. Instead of multiplying the speed by the final output of the counter it might work better to change the counter module's increment value from 1 to a float input. If you look in any of granulizer blocks you'll find my version of the counter. I've noticed some unwanted pitch shifting when moving the speed knob. Making this change should fix that.
