Sorting frequencies to different locations

Apr 20 2010 | 1:21 pm

Is there a way of having a sort feature, to sort incoming frequencies? for example, if a microphone is on its obviously picking up lots of frequencies. Ideally i would like the signal to come into the max patch and go through an object which says, if it is between 500 and 600 hz then the signal goes here and if it is between 600-700hz then it goes through here. is that possible?

I think that perhaps your terminology hindered the search I’m sure you tried before asking this question – you’re not sorting frequencies – you’re *filtering* them.

fffb~ would probably do the trick, as well.

Read through MSP Tutorial 26, specifically the section about the simple spectral crossover. Also checking out the forbidden planet example patch might inspire some ideas for you.

i asked a question to do with frequencies but that was how to make max recognise frequencies over dB. cheers guys, great help!!
