amplitude envelopes using a pitch tracker


    Feb 03 2007 | 7:36 pm
    Hi Everyone,
    I have been using Tristan Jehan's pitch~ object to track the input
    pitch from my bass guitar. Cycle~ then outputs a sine wave at the same
    pitch. The amplitude envelope is set using 'breakpoint' (see example),
    but I am wondering: is there any way to 'track' the amplitude envelope
    of the bass guitar directly?
    Thank you,
    -Tim

      Hi Tim,
      Here's a basic envelope follower you can insert into your patch.
      Nothing fancy, but gets the job done.
      Good luck,
      Steven

      I'm on an Intel Mac, so I can't test pitch~, but I bet the amplitude output of pitch~ is pretty close to what you need. You may want to do some smoothing or other integration on it, but it should be in the ballpark.

      I am very new to Max/MSP but have been interested in using a pitch tracker as well. I know this is VERY basic, but i had a question regarding the patches that have been posted, when I open the patch in Max/MSP and there is an inlet and an outlet at either end of the patch, how do I go about sending my guitar signal/line in to the patch to make a sound? I tried using the patches from this thread in a sub patch but i think i'm just a little confused about this. Thank you all for your help in advance!
      Best,
      Julian

      personally i would use adc~ for input and output using a
      signal level fader to dac~

      I'd personally just recommend to read the tutorials...
      (Things which are too basic provoke it... ;-)

      at least you did not recommend to "do it with java", this time.
