Recording with a microphone, but disabling audio?

    Jun 06 2012 | 8:55 pm
    We're trying to make an interactive installation for children, where they can record a short word (max. 5 seconds) which could be outputted after having pressed at an interactive tile.
    But, we're having some small problems:
    1) When we record something, it's been send to the speakers immediately. But, that's not our goal. We want to record something - without hearing what has been recorded - that can be used in the interactive tiles. How can we disable the output of the microphone in Max/MSP?
    2) We would like to interact with some selfmade tiles which will be given a bang (a "pressure sensor" which will be 1 or 0). We're buffering the recorded audio, but how to make it that only when someone presses the tile, you're hearing the sound?
    We are just some beginners in Max/MSP and we know it's a big job to start with, but we'd like to have some help for us to complete our school project. Thanks in advance!
    PS: In the maxpat we have our current trial for Max/MSP.

      The problem is the ezadc/ezdac off to the left of the screen. Also having both adc~ with a toggle is redundant.

      Maybe something like this.
