I’m working on a 24 channel surround sound project and i’m thinking that Max MSP will be perfect for my needs. I basically I’m enquiring if Max can output to 24 different outputs on a Motu sound card. I will be working in Snow Leopard. I’ve previously only worked with stereo audio in Max so am a little confused as to how Max would handle 24 outputs, would the dac object still be used?
I’m sorry if that sounds a little vague I can provide more details if required.
There is the graphic dac~ which looks like a speaker & has 2 inlets addressing (usually) outputs 1 & 2 of your interface, then there’s the generic object into which you would type [dac~ 1 2 3 4 5 6] etc. The more numbers you type, the more inlets appear on the top of the object
