audio input in max


    Apr 18 2006 | 10:26 pm
    Hello,
    I am trying to create a very simple patch in which when someone talks in to a microphone it triggers a video to play. However the way the patch is working right now is that the signal has to be constant for the video to be playing, but I just need the participant to say one word and the video to start.
    What should I use as the audio input in max to do this, I have no clue. Does anyone out there know?
    Thanks!

      you can just connect adc~ to a peakamp~ object setted on a volume
      threshold
      and that's it: you'll get an amplitude change due to the spoken word
      into the microphone.
      What do you mean with " the signal has to be constant"?

      Are you sure this works? How could you make peakamp~ work without audio
      being switched on? (I am sure it doesn't ;-)
      Jen, follow the logic, you need a bang, or a 1 to start the movie, once
      its started, you don't want it to trigger anymore, and you don't want it
      to stop. You didn't paste a patch into your mail, so I guess you
      translate the level of audio directly to control on/off of the movie -
      put a [select 1] behind that... and the other 1001 possibilties to solve
      such problems will be easy to find after you went through all the
      tutorials....

      i guess that if the audio is always on
      as the mic is plugged in,
      then you put a threshhold level
      that is higher than noise/rumors level but lower than
      the spoken word volume.
      this is not the best solution but it might be the max objects' area
      where you need
      to point to and search a bit.
      just that :-)
