One record~ channel, target buffer~ channel?

Jul 12 2008 | 7:06 am

Is it possible to use a record~ object with one single channel, to change its target between one channel of a buffer to other channels of a buffer?

I’m trying to set up a looping tool that will allow me to change the channel of the buffer I’m recording to. It may be that I need to use separate buffers, but using one would solve certain synching problems.

So…is this possible, or should I go to multiple buffers?

Thanks for your clarification.
I couldn’t find arguments to address recording to one channel of a multichannel buffer. I appreciate your confirmation. Getting the architecture right saves a lot of time…

I’ve implemented the multiple tracks with separate buffers. I’m working to synch them now…the poly~ object seems best for matching buffers to single keys, which is not what I’m doing, so I’m recording the start and stop points for one master buffer, and synchronizing the separate buffers to those points, using a counter to deliver a "now" time for recording portions of the slaved additional buffers. I think I’m about there.

Thanks again for your help.
