Max, Reason, and anxiety breakdown…

April 25, 2006 | 10:24 pm

I apologize from the start…, but I need help…deadline hanging over my head…
the deal=
I have midi-controller into tascam-FW mix board into G5…I have a patch that controls synths in REason…I’m trying to figure out how to route the signal from Reason into Max so I can control it via surround (adc~ perhaps?, or something probably easier staring me in the face) in Max…I’ve tried a lot of things and I feel I’m close…I think my brain is shutting down…I just can’t organize the hierarchy of the routing in my head…any suggestions? I know how to do surround sound via the dac~, etc…I have the great ambiencode-surround externals, which are amazing…I just need to figure out how to get REason output into Max without coming out my tascam-FW unless I turn on dac~. am I making any sense? help? any suggestions?

Max supports rewire, you should be able to
route the signal from Reason in to Max that
way. (assuming Reason supports the rewire interface)

I finally got a signal using the rewire~ object help file, etc., which I had tried…, but it seems to be getting intemitent signals. It seems if I have a max patch open controlling reason synth it plays, but if I click off patch onto anything else desktop, etc the signal is lost? this seems odd. I’m close though…

Is there a "release asio in background" setting for you audio driver maybe?

Three things come to mind: Rewire, Soundflower, Jack. Depends on what
you want and how you need control of ins and outs.

If you’d tell what you tried, we could avoid making suggestions which
you tried already or somebody can help with a way it worked for her
already with what you tried, but knowbody knows….
Especially on deadlines its important to be clear ;-)

You’re right Stefan…I was a little frazzled and ambiguous…sorry! I hate using the forum for such frantic posts. I tried Soundflower and REwire, but no success. I abandoned the idea, but thanks for the feedback.
