modout for play~

    Jan 08 2013 | 2:44 pm
    is there an equivalent to sfplay~'s modout for play~? I need it to automatically output mono from both play~ outputs in much the same way as modout does. Any elegant ideas? :)

      modout? I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean.

      modout is a message you can send to sfplay~ which, if you have a 2-channel sfplay~ and put a mono file into it, it will output the mono data out of both outupts.
      There is no default setting for that in any buffer~ based player that I know of, but it shouldn't be too hard to roll your own. I remember doing it years ago, but I can't find the patch offhand. Basically, you do a number of channels test with info~, and then route the output audio accordingly....
