Max/MSP "Listener"

March 4, 2010 | 5:16 pm

I’d like to be able to build a patch which can sit in the background while I have other programs running audio and "grab" the audio from the soundcard and save it to HD.

I’ve done things in the past with udpsend linking supercollider to max/masp, but is there an object that can read "soundcard activity" for want of a better phrase?

you can use something like jack or soundflower to route all coreaudio sound into max’s [acd~].

Oh yeah, had forgotten Jack for Mac. I don’t like Soundflower much (or rather, my set-up doesn’t like it for some reason…) but the latest Jack works just fine.


The very simple "grabber" patch below should any one else want it.

If your audio interface supports "loopback" you can send the main output channels to a defined software input. This way you don’t need Jack or Soundflower but record straight from the interface.
