SDIF file compatibility?


    Jan 18 2007 | 11:04 pm
    I've heard that Max can read SDIF (Sound Description Interchange Format) files. Is this true?
    If I have an SDIF file that contains frequency and amplitude information for a series of sine oscillators, can I simply plug this into a certain module in Max, upon which Max will feed this frequency and amplitude data to a set of sine oscillators?
    Thanks, any help is appreciated

There's a really handy tutorial with a lot of example patches made by Michael Zbyszynski (thanks to him).
      Be aware there's a prehistoric limitation of max to receive only lists of length 256 maximum... > Thanks, any help is appreciated > My pleasure

      Hi,
      To get rid of this limitation (256) I'v used ftm to manage the data for SDIF files here is a patch (it does need ftm externals installed (http://recherche.ircam.fr/equipes/temps-reel/ftm/) and also the CNMAT stuff.
