I made a MaxMSP patch that accepts a mono input and makes the sound jump from speaker to speaker randomly, 26 speakers in total (all independent, so 26 outputs). Now I want to convert this patch into a M4L device, so that I can use it on 26 tracks in live, where each track has its own copy of the device. So in short: my Live+M4L system/set-up should be able to rout any of the 26 inputs to any of the 26 outputs, randomly.
Some testing (and this cycling74 document
) make me suspect that it is not possible to route audio directly from the M4L device to my interface (using dac~), without having to pass through live at the output of my device
Can someone confirm this?
My only other option, I guess, is to route the input audio directly from Live to MaxMSP with ReWire, and do the further calculations (random output selection) in the standalone MaxMSP application. SoundFlower won't work since I am using more than 16 channels.
Thanks in advance for any feedback and/or insights.
