mp3scal

mp3scal — Phase-locked vocoder processing with onset detection/processing, 'tempo-scaling'.

Description

mp3scal implements phase-locked vocoder processing from mp3-format disk files, resampling if necessary.

This opcode allows for time and frequency-independent scaling. Time is advanced internally. The quality of the effect is generally improved with phase locking switched on.

mp3scal will also scale pitch, independently of frequency, using a transposition factor (k-rate).

Syntax

asig, asig2, ktime mp3scal Sfile,ktimescal,kpitch, kamp [,iskip,ifftsize, idecim, ilock]
      

Initialization

Sfile -- source soundfile stereo mp3 files.

ifftsize -- FFT size (power-of-two), defaults to 2048.

idecim -- decimation, defaults to 4 (meaning hopsize = fftsize/4)

iskip -- skiptime in seconds, defaults to 1.

ilock -- 0 or 1, to switch phase-locking on/off, defaults to 1.

Performance

ktimescal -- timescaling ratio, < 1 stretch, > 1 contract. Non-negative numbers only.

kamp -- amplitude scaling

kpitch -- grain pitch scaling (1=normal pitch, < 1 lower, > 1 higher)

ktime -- time stamp

asig, asig2 -- stereo output signals

Examples

Here is an example of the mp3scal opcode. It uses the file mp3scal.csd.
