I am assembling a multichannel video installation using Zach Poff's Multiscreener patch. I'm fairly new to the max/msp/jitter world, so any help you can offer would be most appreciated.
Right now I have two videos displayed over six television sets using 2 mac minis and 2 Matrox triplehead2go graphics expansion modules. The two videos sync perfectly with the multiscreener patch, however I would like to send individual audio tracks to their corresponding monitors.
I have a Presonus Firestudio firewire audio unit that will allow me to send the 6 separate audio channels to their corresponding television set. What I am looking for the best/easiest way to sync these audio tracks to the videos.
I have been searching the forum, and think my answer might be to export the 6 audio channels as separate aiff tracks, and use sfplay to play the audio files individually.
I was thinking there must be a way to get sfplay to read and sync to the timer of the multiscreener server patch, but am at a loss on how to actually do this.
Again, any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
