Integrating Max with Hardware Mixer


    Sep 14 2013 | 1:20 pm
    I have a feeling the idea that "there is no such thing as a stupid question" will be put to the test here. I'm in the middle of learning Max, and developing a simple looper, too. I thought it would be nice to introduce an analogue mixer into the equation, but want to confirm that this would be possible. I have a Saffire Pro 24, which has plenty of outputs for what I need.

      hm. sure audio out(saffire)-> mixer in. Mixer sum out/aux out/group out whatever -> audio in (saffire).. You might want to use inserts also. I don't know. plenty of options here. I don't understand the question or you should just start playing around with audio engineering/do some online course or whatever. Berklee just recently offered a free online course on music production that also covered some audio engineering.

      I'm contemplating Max, but wanted to see can it act as a traditional DAW, in the sense that audio channels can be sent to the individual outputs on the interface, and from there into the mixer.
      I basically want to have channels looped in Max, and control eq, volume, with a hardware mixer via faders.

      That's super easy. [dac~ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8]
