SOLO-ING


    Nov 23 2012 | 4:21 pm
    Hi,
    I have 4 tracks within my max patch; muting each track was easy, soloing each track was easy, but to select multiple solo's for each track is a little tricky (for me anyways..)
    Please help?
    The picture shows the solo function I have tried to set up for this i.e. if solo track one is selected, tracks 2, 3, and 4 would be muted, which is fine if you just want one track soloed, but I need to set this up like a sequencing program where you can have several tracks soloed..

      That image doesn't reveal much... Anyway, the logic of the solo function (really two separate actions in a logical sense) requires that both the following things happen: the solo maintains (or remakes) the signal path in the soloed channel(s), and the signal path is broken in all non-soloed tracks. Here is one slightly annotated solution...

      Thank you Spectro...!
      I'm quite amazed that you did that it what was probably a few minutes.. I'm still trying to get my head around Max... don't worry though, I have plenty of aspirin nearby =))
      Apologies for the brief descriptive image...
      Many MANY thanks for the help! :)

      hi , i bet that 80% of what ive learned about max patching is coming from this forum :D if i would like to make my patches "public" then i should credit the whole community for every project . how to do that ? :) ... this forum should provide some kind of ranking as on http://stackoverflow.com/ . just a thought .
      this community is very active and actually every help is like a gift ,very kind

      I hope that most will agree with the following: if you learn something via the forum and adapt it for your own needs, then no citation is needed. If you use something gleaned from the forum without understanding it, then a citation is de rigueur. Said with absolutely no knowledge of copyright or plagiarism law. Just common decency. I ALWAYS record the name of anyone who solves a MaxMSP issue for me without me completely understanding the solution.
