ATSbufread

ATSbufread — reads data from and ATS data file and stores it in an internal data table of frequency, amplitude pairs.

Description

ATSbufread reads data from and ATS data file and stores it in an internal data table of frequency, amplitude pairs.

Syntax

ATSbufread ktimepnt, kfmod, iatsfile, ipartials[, ipartialoffset, \
          ipartialincr]

Initialization

iatsfile – the ATS number (n in ats.n) or the name in quotes of the analysis file made using ATSA.

ipartials – number of partials that will be used in the resynthesis (the noise has a maximum of 25 bands)

ipartialoffset (optional) – is the first partial used (defaults to 0).

ipartialincr (optional) – sets an increment by which these synthesis opcodes counts up from ipartialoffset for ibins components in the re-synthesis (defaults to 1).

Performance

ktimepnt – The time pointer in seconds used to index the ATS file. Used for ATSbufread exactly the same as for pvoc.

kfmod – an input for performing pitch transposition or frequency modulation on all of the synthesized partials, if no fm or pitch change is desired then use a 1 for this value.

ATSbufread is based on pvbufread by Richard Karpen. ATScross, ATSinterpread and ATSpartialtap are all dependent on ATSbufread just as pvcross and pvinterp are on pvbufread. ATSbufread reads data from and ATS data file and stores it in an internal data table of frequency, amplitude pairs. The data stored by an ATSbufread can only be accessed by other unit generators, and therefore, due to the architecture of Csound, an ATSbufread must come before (but not necessarily directly) any dependent unit generator. Besides the fact that ATSbufread does not output any data directly, it works almost exactly as ATSadd. The ugen uses a time pointer (ktimepnt) to index the data in time, ipartials, ipartialoffset and ipartialincr to select which partials to store in the table and kfmod to scale partials in frequency.

Examples

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