¿More than 2 output signals in Max for Live instruments?

December 28, 2010 | 11:08 am

I´m working with a contemporary dancer in a performance in wich I use 8 speakers. I combine live music made in real time with some audio and video secuences.

I would like to design a Max For Live instrument for use it as a controler of my midi and audio instruments, in the way of making a real time control of the sound in the 8 speakers.

The dificult for me it´s that, by the moment, I can´t find a way to pach my output signal of Max for Live to a 8 diferent tracks outputs since Max for Live instruments are base on 2 MIDI or Audio In/Out.

¿Do anyone might sugest me a solution?.

I´m working with Ableton Live 8.2.1 and Max Msp 5.1.3, in a Imac 2.4 Gz Intel Core Duo, with MAC OS X 10.5.8.

Thanks a lot.

make 8 return tracks hardwired to your 8 outputs
control the sends of your audio (or midi) track with a m4l-device

expect this soon in the standard m4l package

(I did it myself the other way around: I made 4 normal channels with each a small device communicating with a 5th channel which has the source audio and 1 panning knob in an m4l device, this is not so useful if you want to route more than 1 audio source, but otherwise it doesn’t matter that much)
