Polybuffer with 2 channels


    Jan 02 2013 | 3:50 pm
    Hi!
    The title says it all. Does anyone knows how to specify the number of channels for a polybuffer (and for the groove object that goes with it) ?
    Thanks!

      If you load a folder of audio into a a [polybuffer~] object, it will flood the various buffers with audio, mono and stereo.
      If you want the [groove~] object for the buffer to output stereo channels, simply specify that with an argument in the object box.
      For example, if after loading a folder with various stereo audio tracks into a polybuffer called "mybuffer", the [groove~] objects might look something like this:

      sorry if this is a completely stupid question but how do you get the data you pasted from your patch back into a .maxpat format that I can read?
      I tried copying your code into text edit, saving it as blah.txt, then changing the file extension to .maxpat in finder but max gives me some funny errors when I double-click on the file:
      error parsing patcher file Polybuffer.maxpat;
      parsing object: line=1, char=3, text='...{\'
      Any help greatly appreciated!
