The Beat CHOP and Timeline CHOPs are a handy way to generate regular sequential input for music-based projects. They depend on a Time COMP to set the BPM. You can of course set the BPM in the playback bar but I don't always know what the BPM I'm trying to match is.
In this TouchDesigner tutorial we look at how we can use audio data and CHOPs to manipulate a wide variety of sketches. This also works with the audiodevicein. As I quickly touch upon in the video - the input can be anything, not just extracted audio data.
In this tutorial, we create a reusable component for kick and snare detection using CHOPs in TouchDesigner. Tips, Tricks and FAQs Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list... If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
