;
#X text 44 40 The block~ and switch~ objects set the block size \,
overlap \, and up/down-sampling ratio for the window. (The overlap
and resampling ratio are relative to the super-patch.);
#X text 45 230 You may have at most one block~/switch~ object in any
window.;
#X text 45 176 A switch~ with no arguments does not reblock audio computation
-- in other words \, block size and sample rate are as in the parent
patch.;
#X text 46 531 see also:;

#X text 44 567 ... and the control.blocksize and up.downsampling audio
example patches.;
#X text 194 459 <--- example usage in subpatch;
#X text 43 92 Switch~ \, in addition \, allows you to switch DSP on
and off for the window. All subwindows are also switched. (If a subwindow
of a switched window is also switched \, both switches must be on for
the subwindow's audio DSP to run. Pd's global DSP must also be on.)

#X text 32 61 Dac~ and adc~ don't work correctly if reblocked \, nor
if a parent window is reblocked \, even if the window containing the
dac~ or adc~ is reblocked back to the default block size and sample
rate.;
#X text 33 209 Patches using send~/receive~ or throw~/catch~ to intercommunicate
must have the same blocking -- and if their parents are blocked bigger
than they are \, there might be wierdness.;
#X text 31 128 If using send~ or delwrite~ from a switched-off patch
\, the output of corresponding receive~ and delread~ objects in other
\, running patches will cycle old input (and sound like garbage). Throw~
may be switched with impunity \, but not catch~.;
#X text 32 11 INTERACTIONS BETWEEN BLOCK~/SWITCH~ AND OTHER OBJECTS
IN PD;
#X restore 40 482 pd block-interations;
#X text 44 269 Pd's default block size is 64 samples. The inlet~ and
outlet~ objects reblock signals to adjust for differences between parent
and subpatch \, but only power-of-two adjustments are possible. So
for "normal" audio computations \, all blocaks should also be power-of-two
in size. HOWEVER \, if you have no inlet~ or outlet~ you may specify
any other block size. This is intended for later use in video processing.
;
#X text 45 395 Switch~ takes a "bang" message that causes one block
of DSP to be computed. This might be useful for pre-computing waveforms
or window functions \, or also for video processing.;

to be synced to the sample clock: loading a wondiw function in a table
