Using audio analysis to create MIDI data

    Jul 16 2012 | 10:22 pm
    I'm trying to use analysis of audio from an interface to create MIDI data to control instruments within Live. My project reached a standstill when I learned that adc~ cannot be used in M4L patches. Does anybody know a way around this problem?

      Use plugin~.
      I seriously suggest to read up a bit on M4L and what you can do with it (and how). I mean; the default Max Audio Effect contains a plugin~ and plugout~ object for a good reason ;)

      Here is the problem.
      I am trying to use a signal from live guitar playing. That signal is run through spectral analysis. That spectral analysis is transformed into MIDI information.
      So, if I have the live guitar signal coming into an audio track, how would I be able to send the Midi information to a separate Midi track?
      At first I was hoping that I would be able to put the signal from the guitar into Live through adc~ but that object is rendered useless as soon as you put it into a .amxd
