ok im very new to max msp so please forgive, in fact I haven't even used it yet, but I am a quick learner.
Now iv been told by a reliable source that the software might be able to do what I need for an audio installation I want to create. Basically I wanted to create a room with contact mics on the floor all taped down obviously, and as people walk around the room there footsteps would be amplified by loudspeakers, but, each corner would also have a different effect on the amplified footsteps, if that makes sense, so one corner there footsteps would go into a large hall verb, but as they walked to the other corner it would change to a plate, just for example.
In the middle of the room might be a blend of all 4 effects. Does anyone know if this would be possible in max msp. I have a 8 channel focusrite sound card plus an octo pre with another 8 possible channels. I have 4 contacts at the moment but can buy more if needed. Does anyone have an idea of how hard this would be to implement. Would I need more microphones or could I perhaps with clever use of velocity triggering in max msp be very creative with just a few mics
