Automatic loop dump during performance

Post by sam_square »

So I've been saving my session during a session and using those loops in other programs to manipulate.
It would be handy to be able to dump all of your loops with a midi command. I see 'save' is mappable, but I tried and it doesn't seem to do anything when 'all' is selected.

Perhaps a default dump directory could be set in preferences.

The loops could then be dumped and named

loop1_timestamp.aif
loop2_timestamp.aif
etc.

Then I could either grab all those loops or setup some kind of 'sweeper' in max/msp that would suck in and make them available.

I guess these commands could be scripted in applescript somehow too...
I have no experience, but could probably figure it out and share if I end up doing it.

The midi-bound save command should be saving timestamped wav files somewhere, even with all loops selected in the binding. The trick is figuring out where. I'm not in front of a mac right now, but do a Spotlight search for files beginning with 'sl_'.

Good idea to have a default dump directory specifiable!

I'll give that a try - I thought it was doing nothing when no loops were selected and save was pressed. I'll mull it over - one folder could work if I could set up a process to 'sweep' files into max/msp and delete them afterwards.

I joined the forum to make this kind of request, freewheeling does something simmilar although it seems unfortunatly more of an inactive project.
If its already there I'm sorry however a midi/key bindable save all samples would be of great use, I personally would like the option to do it in flac and determine the folder where they are saved, numbered or dated options :0) maybe also an automatic rename if others have same name so we can carry on looping, thanks in advanced :@)

Basically save all samples without bringing up a menu, in simpler terms
