Indexed list with lifetime?

I just want to have a list that I can add items to, and they are removed automatically after a certain amount of time. The attached patch has the exact behavior I am after, but is using the particle plugin, which seems quite wasteful.

Can anyone point me to how to patch this without the plugin? I’ve been trying to do it with a DIAR, but can’t seem to get it to work properly. Been bugging me all week!

your patch looks good, the particle node uses about 10 ticks, if you would patch that behavior with some nodes, it wouldn’t be faster. but i didn’t tried…

Sweet. I’ll happily take your word for it. I’ll just pop it inside a module and move on to the fun stuff then :)
