we've been doing a project in which we have created 10 tracks filled with samples. Each track represents a particular category. For example track 1 is just sounds of the sea, track 2 is sounds of different wildlife, track 3 is random everyday sounds such as telephones, police sirens etc , track 4 is psychedelic sounds and so on. People trigger the sounds using different launchpads and can play up to 10 samples at a time, 1 from each category.
The big problem is that 6 together sounds fantastic but 10 sounds too busy. We'd like to keep the number of categories but limit the number that can be played at any one time to 6. We thought we'd do this by creating a max patch that would stop on the selection of the 7th category, it would stop the first category from playing automatically so at any one time there would only be 6 of all the categories.
We have invited 400 people to an event for Monday and have no idea how to do this. Everything else has been a lot of work and we're worried this is going to ruin it.
Has anyone got any ideas? We will name the event after you!!!
