Delay CHOP

Summary

The Delay CHOP delays the input. Multiple channels can be fed in to delay each separately. Each channel can have a separate delay time using me.chanIndex.

Echoes can be created by chains of Delay CHOPs with Math CHOPs between, or by using the Feedback CHOP.

Parameters - Delay Page

Delay delay - Delay in seconds, or in units determined by its Units menu. To get a delay per channel, use me.chanIndex. From a table where each row has a delay amount, use op('delaysTable')[me.chanIndex,0].

Delay Unit delayunit -

Max Delay maxdelay - Useful for optimizing performance when the Delay parameter above is changing dynamically. Set Max Delay to a value higher than the expected range of the Delay parameter.

Max Delay Unit maxdelayunit -


Parameters - Common Page

Time Slice timeslice - Turning this on forces the channels to be "Time Sliced". A Time Slice is the time between the last cook frame and the current cook frame.

Scope scope - To determine which channels get affected, some CHOPs use a Scope string on the Common page.

Sample Rate Match srselect - - Handle cases where multiple input CHOPs' sample rates are different. When Resampling occurs, the curves are interpolated according to the Interpolation Method Option, or "Linear" if the Interpolate Options are not available.

  • Resample At First Input's Rate first - Use rate of first input to resample others.
  • Resample At Maximum Rate max - Resample to the highest sample rate.
  • Resample At Minimum Rate min - Resample to the lowest sample rate.
  • Error If Rates Differ err - Doesn't accept conflicting sample rates.

Export Method exportmethod - - This will determine how to connect the CHOP channel to the parameter. Refer to the Export article for more information.

  • DAT Table by Index datindex - Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the index of the channel in the CHOP.
  • DAT Table by Name datname - Uses the docked DAT table and references the channel via the name of the channel in the CHOP.
  • Channel Name is Path:Parameter autoname - The channel is the full destination of where to export to, such has geo1/transform1:tx.

Export Root autoexportroot - This path points to the root node where all of the paths that exporting by Channel Name is Path:Parameter are relative to.

Export Table exporttable - The DAT used to hold the export information when using the DAT Table Export Methods (See above).
