Six samples at six pitches at six tempi
In order for this patch to work properly, you'll need to first download the attached .zip archive of six short soundfiles, uncompress it, and put the sound files in the Max search path.
You'll also need to download the patch from the example Subpatch for paying sound cues from sflist~. Save it with the name "playsamples.maxpat" in the Max file search path.
Once you have the six soundfiles and the "playsamples" subpatch in the Max file search path, this example patch will work.
This patch plays the six notes of an E major guitar chord at six different tempi, in the ratios 1:2:3:4:5:6. It uses 6 guitar samples (which you'll need to put in the Max file search path), a 6-voice poly~ for playing samples (using the "playsamples" subpatch), and the sflist~ object so that all 6 sfplay~ objects in the poly~ can access the 6 cues.
