In the examples on Sonic Pi, it has a
delay argument on the
:echo fx, e.g.
with_fx(:echo, delay: 0.5, decay: 4) do
(in ‘Echo Drama’)
However, this isn’t in the docs for
Does this do nothing? Or if it does, what does it do? And how do you find out? Are there more docs? I looked at the github but couldn’t find anything.
Where did you find this?
Besides the usual parameters (like
mix e. g. which also come with other effects) the
:echo fx only has
phase (this you could possibly also call
delay as it is “the time between echoes in beats”.) and
it was in the examples on Sonic Pi. This particular example was from
Echo Beats but there are others in other examples.
They are written by Sam Aaron, so it seems unlikely he would put anything that didn’t work in the examples.
I can’t hear any obvious difference between them.
I’ll try pinging @samaaron
Don’t be so sure - things change and it’s always hard to track all the transitive dependencies
delay just do nothing then
No, I don’t think so. Use
phase to set the time inbetween echos.
But it does not do any harm either .
