I am trying to design a touch-screen-based interface that can simultaneously run 87 premade audio files (all of them 6-minute long) and selectively fade them in and out at variable rates so that I can control the group of actually sounding lines at a given moment. Finally, I want to be able to selectively diffuse the audio files through a quadraphonic system.
I have been tinkering with MAX/MSP, but I have not done any major task, so I feel quite lost here. ANY help and suggestions will be much appreciated.
The three biggest challenges for me are…
(1) Playing 6-minute long audio files (87 of them) always running simultaneously in real time with high stability
(2) fading-in and –out them at variable rates
(3) Quadraphonic diffusion
(4) Connection of the patch to touch screen (ipad or galaxy tap)
Again, thank you so much!
