SWAP - Dj/audio patch with cool features for contributions &/or advice
Apr 06 2016 | 11:10 am
The DJ/audio patch that I have created represents months of work (I'm still learning Max!) and contains a lot of features; these are listed below. The patch has been created for my uni dissertation project - which is looking at open-source materials/community vs high-price products. The patch is fully functioning though I still have to iron out some of the finer details now I am able to play with it properly. I will post a video link shortly showing how to use the patch and what it can do :) I want to give this to the community as an open-source patch but I would like to ask the following so that I can show that this project is truly open-source;
* - There are sub-patches created for send and return audio effects and would like to ask for some simple effects that can be used, * - If you make any changes, please post the patch on this page, highlighting what you have done.
Before I talk about the features I would like to say that I am also working on creating a hardware interface using an Arduino Uno, 2 MuxShields and a completely hacked version of Firmata to achieve the task of getting all 92 pins to work!! The layout of this patch is to make hardware routing a simpler and tidier task.
Functions Of The Patch
Two stereo channels each with pre-gain, 3 EQ's and Cuts, pan and volume A display showing the movement of the waveform as the track plays, drag files onto displays to load them and select areas of tracks Loop player that allows for cropping samples. Copy audio from the audio channels to and between loops, Loop player with option to split an audio file in up to 16 segments that can be re-arranged, muted or reversed (Left & Right channels are independent!) Assign Loops and Channels to either side of the cross-fader Save audio files Stream audio files (yet to fully implant this feature though it is in the patch)
I would appreciate anything that anyone wants to contribute to this patch including any advice. If any one has any questions about this then please post them on this page and I will happily answer anything.
