Housekeeping/tidying up patches
Oct 17 2015 | 11:54 pm
I have started learning max recently and this is the first patch that I have made that is not related to a tutorial. It's a sampler/sequencer/livelooper and it's huge! I am pretty sure that there's a way for making it more accessible as I feel that even if I want to add more stuff to it, it's too cluttered that it's becoming kind of a pain. So are there any tips with regards to what I might want to change in order to make it at least seem a little bit more elegant/manageable?
The patch (attached) needs a little bit of explanation though as I made it as a sort of soundscape generator: - There are 7 drag and drop spots for samples, passing through an eight step sequencer then through an adsr~ envelope/delay/degrader~/pan/lores~ and gain (the reason it's 7x8 is that I want to map everything to my apc40) - Then there are four buffers to record the output of the sequencer and loop them. The first two are synced to global tempo, with the first being 8 bas long and the second 4 bars. The last two are kinda random and I am using them basically to loop certain parts of the output. EVerything out of here has sends for a delay & reverb with everything going through an EQ/Filter - The four buffers underneath are attached to the ezadc~ and I am using these mainly for guitar inputs (they are all syncd to the tempo, set to start recording only at the first beat and also have their dedicated sends to a reverb, delay and a stutter~ object which I can't seem to get to sync to tempo at all) AAAAnd all of that is going to a compressor (which is not really smart but given the clutter I am finding that adding a compressor on each channel a bit too much)
any suggestions are very very extremely welcome Mo
