Input to a delay line
tapin~ receives a signal in and copies into a delay line. Using tapout~ objects, you can read from the delay line at various delay times. You must connect the outlet of a tapin~ object to the tapout~ objects you want to use with the delay line. Note that this is not a signal connection, since no signal travels between the objects. It is merely a way to indicate that the objects share the same delay memory.
The maximum delay time in milliseconds. This determines the size of the delay line memory. If the sampling rate is increased after the object has been created, tapin~ will attempt to resize the delay line. If no argument is present, the default maximum delay time is 100 milliseconds.
Common Box Attributes
Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.
background [int] (default: 0)
Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer.adds the object to the background layer, removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.
color [4 floats]
Sets the color for the object box outline.
Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:
0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'
Sets the object's font.
Sets the object's font size (in points).
hidden [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.
Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.
ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.
patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)
Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.
position [2 floats]
Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.
presentation [int] (default: 0)
Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.
presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)
Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.
rect [4 floats]
Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).
size [2 floats]
Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.
Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.
0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'
