deltapx

deltapx — Read from or write to a delay line with interpolation.

Description

deltapx is similar to deltapi or deltap3. However, it allows higher quality interpolation. This opcode can read from and write to a delayr/delayw delay line with interpolation.

Syntax

aout deltapx adel, iwsize

Initialization

iwsize -- interpolation window size in samples. Allowed values are integer multiplies of 4 in the range 4 to 1024. iwsize = 4 uses cubic interpolation. Increasing iwsize improves sound quality at the expense of CPU usage, and minimum delay time.

Performance

aout -- Output signal.

adel -- Delay time in seconds.

a1      delayr   idlr
        deltapxw a2, adl1, iws1
a3      deltapx  adl2, iws2
        deltapxw a4, adl3, iws3
        delayw   a5

Minimum and maximum delay times:

idlr >= 1/kr                                Delay line length
 
adl1 >= (iws1/2)/sr                         Write before read
adl1 <= idlr - (1 + iws1/2)/sr              (allows shorter delays)
 
adl2 >= 1/kr + (iws2/2)/sr                  Read time
adl2 <= idlr - (1 + iws2/2)/sr
adl2 >= adl1 + (iws1 + iws2) / (2*sr)
adl2 >= 1/kr + adl3 + (iws2 + iws3) / (2*sr)
 
adl3 >= (iws3/2)/sr                         Write after read
adl3 <= idlr - (1 + iws3/2)/sr              (allows feedback)
        

[Note] Note

Window sizes for opcodes other than deltapx are: deltap, deltapn: 1, deltapi: 2 (linear), deltap3: 4 (cubic)

Examples

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