M4L: crossfader?


    Oct 06 2013 | 8:07 pm
    sorry, beginner's question: in Max4L, is it possible to have a crossfader device, or is this impossible (because of Live's architecture: "audio effect" can only affect one channel, which's input is set in Live's In/Out section).

      Just for reference, what's wrong with the one included in the mixer section in Live? I've always found that to be very adequate.

      of course Live's xFade is totally ok. What I want exactly is frequency-dependent crossfade: signal is split into two or three frequency bands, which can be xFaded independently.

      then you'll need to have two max for live devices; one on one of the channels, and a little "sattelite" device on the other channel, sort of a master/slave type of thing.

      thanks! interesting idea.

      I think it's the only way of doing it...

      or you can put two Live's "EQ3" in two channels and build a device that adjusts their values using live.remote

      Not sure what you mean with a crossfader device. ?? Can you be more specific with what your doing and actually want to achieve ?
      Just make an empty audio rack (add an EQ 8 , right click create group), set up the chain crossfade region by mapping to a macro, do this on the other track again. Set up crossfades on both racks. Map the same midi knob to both macros and this will create a smooth crossfade. This can be done multiple times. So you can set up as many crossfades as you'd like in a set. This can be used with audio files dragged in OR with instrument tracks. I've uploaded a file to demonstrate :)
