Surround output in Max/MSP

    May 17 2006 | 9:21 am
    Hello forum users,
    I'm attempting to create a 4-channel surround output arrangement for one of my patches, with a user interface similar to a surround panning area available in say Logic or Pro Tools (minus centre speaker).
    I would ultimately like a square with 4 outputs. As the controller (whatever it might be) is scrolled towards the a corner of the square the sound pans to that speaker.
    Any suggestive patches or objects that would help here?

      Thanks for these replies, 5-point-1 panning appears to be everything I need. However, i've played with the patch and i'm curious as to how I might attach controller data?
      I simply want to control 4-channel speaker panning with X and Y co-ordinates. Any suggestions on how to do this?

      Hi Max,
      Something like this?

      You mean, did you have a folder called "quad-spatializer-folder" in your "examples" directory ?

      not really if he's on win, 'cause quadpan~ is OSX only and the sources aren't available anymore...
