pan2s help. Few questions.

December 24, 2007 | 1:23 pm

Hi All.
I’ve been set the task of creating a mixer for my studies. I will have four channels playing 4 mono samples by using sfplay objects. I have then send the signals to 2 signal faders, one of which will be left channel and one right. (would prefer a signal stereo channel if it exists?)
But between the sfplay and signal faders i would like to have a constant power panning function but cant seem to work it out, i’ve tried messing around with pan2 but that just sent the signal left or right it didn’t make a smooth fade which what i want.

I should imagine its easy but its now drivin me mad, and any help would be appreciated.???

thx

yeah good stuff, managed to MOD the patch and put the inlets and outlets in the right place to get it to work. THanks very much wouldn’t have known to look there.

Im not a massive user of max but wouldn’t that patch be an important object to be built properly into the program. Proper stupid, or is jus me.

Hi. Quick addition to this. Is there any reason, aside from manual control, to use these fancy-pants panning patches? For example, if I had a series of groove~ objects happily chugging along, each mono yet with specific, fixed locations in the stereo field, would I need anything more complicated than this:

#P user ezdac~ 132 172 176 205 0;
#P window setfont "Sans Serif" 9.;
#P window linecount 1;
#P newex 181 103 47 196617 *~ 0.75;
#P newex 132 103 47 196617 *~ 0.25;
#P newex 132 69 65 196617 groove~ pan;
#P connect 0 0 1 0;
#P connect 0 0 2 0;
#P connect 2 0 3 1;
#P connect 1 0 3 0;
#P window clipboard copycount 4;

I’ve used the different amplitude level pan as a quick-fix before, and it seemed to work fine, but I’m always up for learning better ("correct") methods.
Thanks!

i would say it’s exactly the same – if you want a motionless sound
(which is very fine) no use for a pan pot – i’ve never seen a pan pot
on a marshall amp!!

Several versatile panners are included in my RTC-lib for Max which you can download from: http://www.essl.at
