Hello everyone, I'm trying to make a special synthesizer in Max. Without talking too much about it, here's what I basically need:
a max-patch should contain 88 looped recordings playing simultaneously, and each of the recordings should have a dedicated pitch-bend knob (so 88 pitchbendknobs in total).
another "bigger" (more important) knob sends out midicent values. These values determine which of the 88 recordings are muted, and the values of the pitch bend knobs for the recordings that are still heard.
example: if midicent value is -8145 mute all recordings except for recording 1, sent value 45 to pitchbend-knob 1.
Is this possible with relative ease? I know there should be a programming line for each of the +16.000 values of the midicent-knob..
all comments/ideas are very much appreciated! :)
EDIT: the big knob should have a lot of steps, midicent has over 16.000 but if I could choose the amount of steps myself that would be great, 8000 is also more than enough...the idea is to make a virtual oscillator out of multiple recordings = a high resolution pitch bend over multiple octaves.
