How can I create an audio mixer?

Dec 05 2009 | 3:55 pm

Hi I am new to max/msp. At the moment I am making a patch where you can import audio samples and arrange them by using a mixer. I am trying to create the mixer but i can’t figure out how to import and split the different audio signals to the multislider object. At the moment I am using the sig~ and groove~, what objects do i need to connect those with the multislider so each slider can control the volume of individual imported audio samples? How do I assign each audio sample to each slider? Thanks a lot!!!

Multislider is a Max object and does not do audio. You can control an MSP audio object using a Max object such as multislider.

The general mix object in MSP is called matrix~.

Please take a look at the documentation:

Thanks for your help. I am actually trying to control MSP audio object with the multislider.

matrix~ takes two arguments defining number of inputs and outputs. If you type matrix~ 8 1 it is possible to mix 8 input channels to 1 output.

Check out the help patches and ref pages for matrix~ and multislider.

[multislider], [matrix~], [selector~], [route] plus a wealth of other objects which all do great jobs in routing audio, or values.

a good idea, for when you have a good object for a certain job, have a look at the help for that object, and also check out the ‘see also’ box to see what other objects do that certain job, but in a different way…
