a crossfader where the volume remains constant


    May 04 2006 | 12:51 pm
    hello,
    could someone maybe offer a suggestion on how to make a crossfader where the sound level remains constant? so that with the fader in the middle, with both stereo sources audible, they both play at unity gain, and with the fader at each side, just one source plays at unity gain? i guess this rather means that the combined sound would be twice as loud with the fader in the middle, but that's what i'm looking for...
    this is what i have now, but it cuts the volume in half with the fader in the middle...
    thanks for any suggestions!

      as until now everyone ignored the question :) ... lets try just to do what you were actually asking for.
      well it sounded simple - but i just needed 3 attempts and almost 5 minutes. it is hopefully clean code now at its final stage.
      that was by will that i avoided [expr] which would make the whole thing shorter, but less flexible.

      You might also just use tap.crossfade~ in equal-power mode. It's part of the tap tools collection.

      Oh yes, everybody can and even you do it: (your logpan2 doesn't close one channel completely... ;-) but there are alternatives in the example folder...
