Im updating an old switch node patch to allow for the fading in and out of newly loaded patches. Ive found that even with light patches (with no external assets to be loaded like video) there is always a slight delay (screen freeze) so i thought id get around this by creating a really simple switcher patch that will eventually use a keyboard shortcut to
- Fade out current patch to blank screen. alpha = 0;
- Load new patch into blank screen
- Fade in new patch to alpha = 1
Ive nearly got it working using monoflop, but i cant work out to get the last part working ie the final fadeback in. Is there something like a 3 step monoflop? I could, i guess, use a 2nd monoflop connected to the first - but i still dont know how to feed the value back into my alpha switch. Of course maybe in doing this the wrong way??
see attached patch.
any help, pointers or solutions welcome :)
Another question i have is - why this patch stops working when i move to another location in my file system, it only works on my desktop, it must be a path issue, but i cant find where to re-assign the path to make it work
