New to Max, need help

December 9, 2007 | 7:58 am

Hey, I’m trying to get sound files to randomly play through a selection of four speakers, like i want each speaker to have a seperate folder of files, and I want it to first randomly select a speaker, and then secondly, pick a random sound file from the speakers folder, and play it, than rinse and repeat. Is there an easy way to do this, ive been searching for hours and cant figure it out. Any help would be really appreciated, thanks in advance!

Yes this should be pretty easy. Use the helpfiles and read the
documentation on these objects: ubumenu, random, sfplay~ and dac~ they
should provide whats needed.
