Tblrec has the following arguments:
- input: input signal
- trigger: trigger signal to start/stop recording
- table name: name of f-table to record to
tblrec will record an input signal to an f-table. In addition, there is also the ability to turn the recording off and on. When turned back on, the pointer will rewind to the beginning, overwriting any previous data. When the record pointer reaches the end of the table, it loops to the beginning and continues onwards.
The patch below demonstrates one particular way tblrec can be used. A simple karplus-strong instrument is recorded into a 2-second long buffer. The buffer is then randomly shuffled through using the phase-vocoder mincer.
tblrec pushes a copy of the dry signal back onto the stack.
