Help needed, trying to make a multitrack recorder patch.

May 17 2010 | 3:11 pm


I am quite new to Max/MSP and I am trying to create a multi-track recorder for a University project. I have become stuck!

I want to provide a Pan function and I am using a Live Dial, this may be the problem. I want the control to adjust 2 gain sliders, but can’t get it right.

There are other things I would like to include too. Like routing to a master fader etc, so any tips greatly appreciated!!

The other thing is the filename that each track is going to be saved as. once written, it can’t be overwritten, I get an error in the max window. Any ideas how I can get the filename to increment so it is something like track1_1.wav? where track1 is the track number like on a desk and the _1 would change. Am I going about "Arming" the track in the right way? I want to be able to arm the tracks I want to record on and then hit record. That could be upto 16 with my interface but 8 would be great and 4 a minimum

What I have so far is below, I really am a novice!!!!

Thanks in advance for any info you can give.

for panning look at the [pan2] object; a simple submix can be setup by sending several [gainslider]’s to the left inlet of [+~], thence to a master fader; as for incrementally overwriting the name of a save file, can’t help you dood; I would just use a prepend object connected to the right inlet of a message and create a new file on each new recording.
