Use playlist~ to organize sets of soundfiles and play them back. Each sound is given a visual representation in a clip where a selection from the entire sound file may be choosen. Clips may be dragged within a playlist~ to re-order them, or they may be dragged to other playlist~ objects by using the handle (dot) on the left side of the clip.
accentcolor [4 floats]
Set the color of the loop icon when turned off.
allowreorder [int] (default: 1)
Allow the re-ordering of clips in playlist~ by dragging the handle (dot on the left side) of a clip above or below other clips.
0 = 'Off'
1 = 'On'
2 = 'Automatic'
Set a tuning standard based on a frequency for A for pitch correction operations (440 = default, range is 400 - 500). Both timestretch and pitchcorrection need to be enabled to adjust the basic tuning.
bgcolor [4 floats]
Set the background color of playlist~.
channelcount [int] (default: 2)
Number of audio channels to playback. Changing this attribute will clear the playlist~ content.
clipheight [float] (default: 30.)
Height alloted for each clip to be displayed. This value may be altered when dragging new clips into the playlist~ according to the expansion attribute.
color [4 floats]
Set the color for the waveform and controls.
elementcolor [4 floats]
Set the clip divider color.
expansion [symbol] (default: squeeze)
Style of accomodation for adding clips to a playlist~ with no empty space available.
'squeeze' ( Maintain the size of the box and reduce the height of all clips to make room. )
'static' ( Maintain both the size of the box and the height of all clips. A scroll bar will need to be used to access clips out of view. )
'grow' ( Expand the size of the box downward, while maintaining the height of all clips. )
formant [float] (default: 1.)7.0.0
Set the amount of formant scaling when pitchshifting is performed. timestretch must be enabled to adjust the formant scaling.
Turn on formant correction when pitch correction is performed. Both timestretch and pitchcorrection need to be enabled first.
Turn looping on/off.
loopreport [int] (default: 0)
When enabled, the message "loopnotify", followed by the clip number and file name, is sent out the fourth outlet of playlist~ every time a loop occurs.
Set the timestretching mode to be used. Each mode is optimized for handling different kinds of audio material. All modes are zero latency. timestretch must be enabled first.
originallength [10 atoms]7.0.0
The original length of the the audio file. This can be measured in ticks, bars.beats.units, or notevalues. Used by followglobaltempo to calculate the speed in relation to the global transport speed. Setting the originallength will calculate the originaltempo. followglobaltempo must be enabled first.
The original tempo of the the audio file. Used by followglobaltempo to calculate the speed in relation to the global transport speed. Setting the originaltempo will calculate the originallength. followglobaltempo must be enabled first.
parameter_mappable [int] (default: 1)
When parameter_mappable is enabled, the object will be available for mapping to keyboard or MIDI input using the Mappings feature.
Enable/disables the formant-corrected chromatic intonation correction. timestretch must be enabled first. For more extensive real-time intonation correction, use the retune~ object.
pitchshift [float] (default: 1.)7.0.0
Specify pitchshift as a factor of the original pitch (i.e. 2.0 = doubling of pitch, .5 = halving of the original pitch, etc.). timestretch must be enabled first.
pitchshiftcent [int] (default: 0)7.0.0
Specify pitchshift as positive or negative cent values (i.e. 100 = semitone up, -1200 = octave down). Cents may be specified as ints or floats. timestretch must be enabled first.
Choose the quality for timestretching output.
reportprogress [int] (default: 0)
Report the progress (0. - 1.) of the currently playing media file via the notification output.
selectioncolor [4 floats]
Set the color of selections.
showname [int] (default: 1)
Show the file name for each clip.
slurtime [float] (default: 0.)7.0.0
Set the time it takes for the correction to reach the full corrected amount. Typically, notes are a bit unstable at the beginning, because the attack phase of a sound has a higher amount of noise, and because singers gradually adjust their tuning after the onset of the note. The slur time makes the pitch correction sound natural because it models this effect. Higher values will yield a slower adaptation time and it will take longer for the correction to produce the corrected pitch. However, longer slur times will also preserve vibrato better. timestretch and pitchcorrection must be enabled first.
Set the playback speed. 1.0 = original speed, 0.5 = half-speed, etc.
style [symbol] (default: )
textcolor [4 floats]
Set the color of the file name text.
Disable/enable timestretching. When timestretch is set to 1, you can control the quality of the conversion with the mode, quality, and formant attributes.
waveformdisplay [int] (default: 1)
Display style for waveforms that represent each clip.
0 = 'Bi-Polar'
1 = 'Rectified'
Common Box Attributes
The rightmost outlet sends a dictionary summary of the playlist~ content in response to the 'getcontent' message.
2nd from right outlet sends messages of the form 'start N clipname' or 'done N clipname' where N is the index and 'clipname' is the name of the clip.
There is one signal outlet for each of the playlist~ object's output channels.
These are followed by a signal indicating the position of the playback head. The integer part of the number is the index of the clip that is playing. The fractional part of the number is the instantaneous position within that clip.
