no new features in this minor update, just embedded it in a little demo ensemble, to show, what's possible with simple sequencing of the start and stop positions.
this macro is just the very beginning of a new beat-mangler tool i'm working on. it's based on a aimple audiotable. by click and drag on the sampler-display and moving with the mouse, you can select a specific part in the sample to be played - wether repetitive (if clicked on) or only triggerd by a single gate event.
by moving the mouse left/right can change the start position of the selected part, by moving up/down it's the same for the end-position of the selcted part. if the start position is before the end-position, the selected part will be played backwards. further you have a speed control.
this macro may not be useful as standalone instrument - this is why i didn't upload it as one - but maybe for some people it's useful for creating a new instrument based on this sampling macro!?
be so kind and drop a line, if you like it or find it useful or if you have suggestions on developing that macro.

You'll need a grain envelope. It's essentially a tiny envelope for every grain and smooths off all the clicks. Let me know if you need any help!

Joachim, I'm not sure if you thought about this already but If you feed a ramp osc into the wx of the audio table (freq = 1, amp = 44100), make W = 1, give it some audio input and replace the loaded wave with a buffer of 44100, you have a realtime glitcher. That could easily be adapted to work in core. Awesome work!

great idea, full of possibilities. :-)

many thanks, guys! i'm currently trying to make that thing resynth-sampler-like, with independant speed and pitch functionality, but i still have rather experience in interpolation algorithms for granular samplers (otherwise it's starting to click and crackle at low speed/pitch)? maybe someone has a good hint for me?

Thanks. I think I can use it in my (PA(IR-project.

Awesome! Recently i was using my new Kenton Killamix-Controller for a live-act and this macro seems like to become part of my toys for future performances because it's readymade for the x/y-joystick on my controller :-)
