Forums > Jitter only plays sound when I change the volume

Aug 19 2010 | 4:02 pm

When starting a film, the film starts mute. Only when I change the volume with the numberbox, I get to hear the sound. What can I do to change that?

weird… You should post your patch.

That is difficult. It is part of a very big patch. i will try to get it out of there

Here goes a patch. Two problems: I cannot control the volume and the sound starts always on my internal speaker even with my mbox selected in the DSP status window.

Well, it’s a little bit "le brun" ton bazar !! (messy), not easy to see what is going on !

It works if: you send "soc playback" once the movie is loaded, and if I refresh the dac~, maybe you turn it on too soon (can’t find it).

You have to search around this I guess.

Ok, I changed some things and it works now. BUT: when the level is up (not equal to zero) I get a horrible sidenoise with the sound. Even when the movie stops, the hum stays. Only when I turn the volume to zero the hum stops.

and soetimes the bloody thing goes through the internal speakers. I have no idea what is happening here

I got it almost working. One issue: when I start to play a movie, the sound comes through channel 1 and 2 for half a second and only then goes to channel 3 and 4. Any idea?

Ok, my mbox is doing weird. I just want the sound to go from spigot to channels 3,4,5 and 6. Nothing More then that. Please tell me how to do that?

You should make your patch clear !! We can not help you if it’s not ! And try not to spam the forums…Thx

I think this should work. Can anyone confirm if I made mistakes. Part of the reason why it did not work was because I was not using the right valume message. I used vol $1 instead of trackvol 1 $1. Since I changed that, it works fine. A stupid mistake, but someone on the forums suggested it. Anyway. I cleaned up the patch and added comments. So if anyone can look at it i would be very happy.

@ Everybody: sorry for the spamming. It is just that I have to catch a plane in some hours and I want to have this finished.

patch itself

unless your source movies actually have multiple tracks, then you shouldn’t use trackvol message, but the vol attribute.

I did some changes to the patch. Now I have some questions:
i only have two channels 1 and 2 now. What I want is to switch between outputting the sound from the films or the sound from the microphone. Can I use the vol $1 message and a numberbox to manipulate the volume? In case the film stops, it stops outputting sound as well. I really would like to ditch spigot because of the delay in sound playback.
