Spigot~ and QT 7

    Mar 17 2006 | 11:07 am
    This has to be brought up regulary, sorry,
    When is spigot~, or any other method of geting sound of a movie into MSP, going to be possible with Quicktime 7?
    Its essential and does need a soultion.

      Stefan -
      As we have mentioned repeatedly, most recently yesterday, this is under development. We thank you for your patience -- solving this problem has not been easy and we understand that you've been waiting for a while.
      Every email I have to write repeating this takes several minutes out of the time I would have to spend finishing the fix. Furthermore, you know that this is a priority for us, and there's no amount of pressure that's going to make it come faster than it's going to come. You've been part of this community long enough to be keenly aware of that.
      And speaking personally, there is absolutely no sense in repeatedly pushing my buttons -- it just gets on my nerves.
      If you need a solution yesterday, plug the audio output of your computer into the audio input, or downgrade to OS X.3 with QuickTime 6.

      Or *split* your movie files (can be done in batch with jit.qt.movie) into movie and sound files to use with sfplay~. Again, has been mentioned several times and it provides more rocust playback possibilities that those provided by earlier versions of spigot~.

      I have a workaround that I can post if anyone is interested. First you must open your movie in Quicktime and export the sound as a separate file giving it the same name as the video (video.mov, video.aif). Then sync the loop and playback of jit.qt.movie and sfplay~ with common messages. This works for simple playing. Obviously there is a bit more work if you want to sync random access.

      Or route system sound out to SoundFlower and set Max input to same. An ADC~ and a DAC~ with a gain slider in between and you're done.

      my workaround is to patch the first 2 channels of the audio interface back in. works only with multichannel audio card, but sure is less effort than working with splitted files.
      best, david
