how to pan a sound file left to right?

Apr 08 2010 | 12:59 pm

Does anyone know a patch to pan a sound file left to right as a person moves left to right in front of a camera?
An idea of how I can get started would be great. I was thinking of using cv.jit.parameter, but I haven’t managed to do it.
Thanks for your help in advance

Look at pan2.maxpat and pan2s.maxpat in help from Max.

I have modified your patch erick, but the results I am getting are not great, as when it is panning left (o), it doesn’t sound that left. I am a little bit stuck with making it sound more "extreme" left & right etc

How would yo want your sound more extreme roght eg. than muting the left chan and leaving right unattenuated?

I was thinking that yeah, I could easily implement that but I thought there might be a better way of doing it. Because I feel that the left atm isn’t very left. If that makes any sense? The right seems to be working great, but when I pan to the Left it just sounds central

what is your input like? it should be 0. – 0.25.

you could also use only one cycle~ and then do *~ -1. +~ 1. to one side.
