I’ve been working on the software for TapClip—which is rolling along, in preparation for a workshop next week. So far, it’s working pretty well, though the minim library is causing me some grief. There appears to be a noticeable lag-time when using loadSample to queue a .wav file in memory.

I think it has something to do with this buffer underrun error I’ve been seeing a lot of (see below). It’s thrown somewhere in the javasound library, and I haven’t tracked it down yet, so that’s all I’ve got. At any rate, it’s probably not that important (the error, I mean)—but if I can’t get it resolved, I may give the Ess library a try (thanks to Nick Gillian of for the suggestion.

The code is up on GitHub.
