I’m working on a 24 channel surround sound project and i’m thinking that Max MSP will be perfect for my needs. I basically I’m enquiring if Max can output to 24 different outputs on a Motu sound card. I will be working in Snow Leopard. I’ve previously only worked with stereo audio in Max so am a little confused as to how Max would handle 24 outputs, would the dac object still be used?
I’m sorry if that sounds a little vague I can provide more details if required.
Yes, still use [dac~ ]. It says in the help file that there are no limits to the number of channels you can have, which means you’re only limited by your audio interface.
Many thanks for the reply. Do you know how the [dac~] object would be configured to deal with 24 outputs? Am I naive in thinking that i would need 12 [dac~] objects?
There is the graphic dac~ which looks like a speaker & has 2 inlets addressing (usually) outputs 1 & 2 of your interface, then there’s the generic object into which you would type [dac~ 1 2 3 4 5 6] etc. The more numbers you type, the more inlets appear on the top of the object
Many Thanks! I’ll have a play and see if i can get it up and running.
Yep, no probs, I’m linking two MOTU ultralites and send to each speaker with [dac~ 1 2 3] etc as Alastair said.
yes if you have a soundcard with that number outputs.. just dac~ 1-24 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6… etc. 24), and you will be done
Managed to get this working, many thanks guys…i’m sure i’ll be posting again with more problems!
