record and mix

Hi

This is my first time using max, I have used Jitter in the past.

I am trying to play an aiff file at the same time that I capture external sound, mixing it with the sound that I am playing with some sound effects.

Is this easy to do with max, can you recommend me some objects and or some cool sound effects to explore?

Thanks,

Daniela

easy as pie, everything that goes to the dac~ adds together (sfplay plus your adc~ input, plus anything else). Try multiplying / convoluting the signals before they go out, can be interesting. Also an LFO is cake, just *~ a signal with a low-freq cycle or other modulator wave. (or a high-freq one, etc. etc.)

For effects I love the filtergraph~ / biquad~. lots of cool possibilities there. just watch your levels, they can get real loud real fast.

There are many ways to skin this cat. I often use something like this for mixing:

#P window setfont “Sans Serif” 9.;
#P window linecount 1;
