Hi all, new SC user here, recently came over from MAX. SC is really amazing, as you all know, but I’m having one little niggle with it- getting it to respond quickly to user input, such as hitting a pad.
Here is what I’ve read on it:
-----s.sendMsg is faster communication to the server
-----Create a synth, pause it, and un-pause it when the human signal comes in
(somehow this does not seem to make a difference)
-----Use a SytnhDef and not quickplay (obvious)
-----Turn the latency down to zero for human-input events
-----Read differing accounts on using the internal server
-----Perhaps send the server OSC messages directly from the program processing the pads, MAX in this case
I’m not asking “which one” to use, as I’ll probably have to do everything I can in order to get a pad to play a sample instantaneously. Hopefully this is something others have already banged their heads against the wall about? Any feedback is vastly appreciated.
(also I’m using a pretty slow computer, and old 1.3Ghz dual-core without supernova. could this be a significant factor? I can get good input timing accuracy with MAX, but something in SC is standing in my way)
Thank you again
