I have a very specific problem I'd like to solve, and Max seems to be the most down my alley. (None of the commercial available software does what I need, I have some experience with visual programming, and I'm to lazy to learn real programming.)
So far I have two very specific questions that I'd like to know before i get into something i can't handle.
I wish to analyze a single note with FFT. I have to get the partials/harmonics frequencies out as numbers.
One way I figured to do this is to parallel process a single through approximate bandpass filter (+/- half tone from a preset frequency) to get rid of the garbage around the partial whose number i need to extract.
I've seen examples of polyphonic pitch recognition, namely with "fiddle~" and something called Realtime Polyphonic Pitch Observation with MnM object set. The latter uses a preset pitch database so it's really not that interesting for me. Is that feasible? The frequency extracted needs to be as accurate as possible.
Can i deal with switchable sub patchers or bpatchers in presentation mode? As in, you have more "tabs" in the same interface. This is not mandatory but would save plenty of screen real-estate, i guess it could be theoretically solved with databases and presets.
Thank you for reading
