choosing [adc~] input with one [adc~]...

    Nov 02 2009 | 9:09 pm
    hello all,
    this is just a quick question to ask if anyone does know.
    how do you choose different inputs off of one [adc~]. basically i want to have the choice of switching inputs on a patch with audio feeding in and just having one [adc~]. i have a [tab] which i have connected to some messages that i want to use to change the input when i want to. i have tried different ways but can not seem to come up with the goods.
    yes, i have looked on the help patch, there is nothing. also i have looked in the archives, but there is nothing i can find on it.
    hope someone can help, cheers...
    p.s. so if anyone, is going to be really sarcastic, or have a go at me because their head is bigger in this field, dont bother. all i have seemed to have gotten on the forum recently is grief from people when i ask a question or answer one. i am here to ask questions, not have abuse or insults thrown at me for no reason.

      Would something like this work?

      that is close, but is more so just one outputting [adc~]. rather than having 1-8 on the [adc~], if you get me. i did do something like that before (but using [tab] instead), but would prefer just one single outputted [adc~] if i dont get it in the end, its no big lose. i will just go back to the other idea.
      i am trying to remember one patch done years ago that had what i am on about, but that was a year or more ago and cant remember where it has gotten to.
      but thank you for your reply anyhow...

      not sure I quite understand what you are trying to do, but maybe [adstatus input] does what you are looking for?

      well what i have tried before is this:-
      but that does not work at all (but more so the idea for what i would like). that is what i am trying to do. is have a message to then set the [adc~] to a certain input. what i am working on is an six channel audio manipulator, and this is the sort of thing i would like.

      from the helpfile:
      set logical-output-channel [int]logical-input-channel [int]
      The word set, followed by two numbers, sets the logical input channel for one of the object's signal outlets. The first number specifies the outlet number, where 1 is the leftmost outlet. The second number specifies the logical input channel (from 1 to 512). If the second number is 0, the outlet sends out the zero signal.
      I have never tried this myself but looks like you need two arguments, not just one.

      came up with this, it works. all fine and dandy.
      thanks for the help man, much appreciated...

      I can't test this right now, but according to the documentation your messages should read "1 1", "1 2", etc.
      The first number specifies the outlet number, where 1 is the leftmost outlet.
      glad this helped.

      You don't need the [route] and individual messages. Try using [prepend] or the $1 variable in a message. Also note that the leftmost outlet is number 1 rather than 0.

      thats great man. less code and all that i will use that idea as it is less cumbersome.
      much thanks to you both. i totally forgot about [prepend], because that is great object to do these type of message sending.
      again, thanks to you both...
