Define audio Output as a INPUT signal?

Hi all,

I’ve got a bit of an interesting question. I’ve tried searching, havent really come up with anything relevant.
I’ve compiled a Standalone app. Its Output is 1-2. My question is………. Is it possible to define this Output(1-2) as an INPUT signal?
So it would act just like if there would be a Bass-guitar or a Synth plugged in Physically into INPUT 1-2, or 3-4, etc,.?
I’ve tried [adstatus input 1], i’ve also put the whole Audio Staus inside the Standalone. Its not working. Im guessing these input defines are for Physical signals (like bass’es or synths) right? not for my type of scenario.
Is my question possible?

Thanks very much!

You can send your audio to Soundflower and use Soundflower as an input in other software.

I forgot about Soundflower. But thats kind of a half-way solution.
Would it be possible to do this all within Max? I really dont want to use any other software. Was Soundflower built with Max?

@jamesson; There is nothing wrong or extra ordinary with the patch. [buffer~] ->> [groove~] ->> [ezdac~] It Outputs 1-2, i want that Output to become an Input signal. (just like using soundflower would)

maybe you can simply route back your signal using selector~ and gate~ before going into ezdac~

ore have more sofisticated routing through the matrix~ object

hmmm… Unfortunately no, it doesn’t seem to work.
I cant see how [matrix~] would be any different. I understand you can specify multiple Inputs/Outputs but thats not the type of Input i am talking about. Or am i missing something? :/

did you try adoutput~ ?

Wait, okay:
Are you asking if it’s possible to input audio into this buffer+groove combo?

It’s kind of difficult to parse what you’re saying, because you skip right to suggesting a sort of “solution”, which we don’t understand. I think if you could write a little bit more about what you want to achieve, that’d be really helpful.

For instance, if it’s the above, then yes it’s absolutely possible.

No i dont think [adoutput~] is a goer. And no i dont want to record into a [buffer~]. Its as @Boris suggested; “send your audio to Soundflower and use Soundflower as an INPUT in other software.” Except i dont want to use Soundflower, i want to imitate what Soundflower does inside Max.

Example;
My standalone app is outputting sound through Output1-2. Now, i open MASCHINE (logic or PT) i want to record that signal coming out of my standalone app. And in-order to record, i need to set an INPUT.

Now I understand. You can do this through Rewire. I don’t know if Pro Tools supports that, but Logic does.
