Ambisonic and cartopol simple math question


    Mar 10 2009 | 3:42 pm
    Hello,
    I've build a simple visual aid with an lcd to set the position of my channels with ambiencode~ from ICST, but i can't find out how to match their coordinate system where full left, f.e, is -90 and full right is 90 degrees (as shown in the picture in the patch).
    Could someone help me a little bit with simple math trick ?
    Here's the patch. Double-click in the [draw_tool] subpatch to find the cartopol thing.

      Put a swap object between your pack and cartopol objects. See below.

      The 'ambimonitor' that works in Max4 is awesome. Is there a reason you have to do it in Max5?

      @mzed : there's a swap.
      @dodgeroo : ambimonitor is an ui object that has to be re-wrote with the new api.
      best

      @f.e
      ambimonitor is out in beta, but not ambiencode...
      I felt free to further modify your draw_tool to draw_tool_waj.
      So it works for me.
      Note my speaker setup as
      1 2
      3 4
      I also have my own color palette.
      I can send it to you by private mail.
