Live audio exporting problem
I have a problem when trying to export audio with live.
I have a M4L device that record audio in a buffer in real time (triggered by a midi note), and a groove~ object that loops and plays it. It sort of a beat repeating device.
Whenever I try to export the file to wav, I hear only "empty" audio without groove loops, like if there was no max device at all –although I hear the loops when audio plays in real time!
Sorry for posting no patch, it’s quite a (too) complicated one to show as an example.
Does anyone have an idea?
If you send a "write" message to the buffer, it should save the audio to a .wav/.aif file. I’m assuming you know you cannot export from the groove~ object itself.
I know that groove cannot export audio, but I didn’t know that live off-line rendering would not work
Tetsuo, I understand now that you are talking about Ableton’s export. Yes, that sounds correct that certain M4L audio device’s won’t render correctly. I would think the midi could be rendered, but maybe Ableton doesn’t know what to do with the buffer or groove object? Actually, I don’t really know why that is? Good question!
I also tried real time rendering, without success.
The only solution seems to use sfrecord~ to resample the part processed with groove~
If anyone has a prettier solution, please share it!
I do know that you could build something with live.tab, live.slider, etc. that would be visible to Ableton, and recordable as automation.
Every single parameter is setted as live object (knobs, number boxes etc)
Autmation is then possible, the only problem being buffer/groove
There’s apparently no buffer~ designed for off-line rendering in Live.
Waiting for a live.buffer~ object :P
