Live Normalization Clipping Problem


    Aug 25 2011 | 11:57 am
    Hi!
    I'm having great difficulty normalizing audio in real time. I understand the basic reasons why it is not working, but I can not think of a way to reslove it in Max Msp. I'm using Max 4.5 by the way.
    I have my piece listening for specific pitches. When it detects them, it records a 1500 ms sample and then manipulates it. I want the sample to then be normalized in real time, preferably after 1500 ms. All I get is clipping. Is there a way to ramp using normalization? The line~ just won't work for me. adsr~? Tried and failed!
    Please help!

      Thanks for the non-existing help, but I figured it out.

      Hi, sorry for not replying, I didn't see this thread.
      There's a real-time normalizer external in my library (see http://www.sadam.hu/software) called [sadam.normalize~]. You could give it a try, although I'm not sure if it works with Max 4.
      Hope this helps,
