I'm making an audio / video patch that will playback audio samples over a 4 channel system. I've only ever used sfplay~ to playback mono / stereo files so far. I have an older version of the patch that plays the audio with 4 channel using 4 seperate sfplay~ objects. However, expanding the patch, I want to have several 4 channel samples playing at once, so I've trying to use 1 sfplay~ object per sample... this leads me to a couple of puzzlers...
-Is it possible to make 1 sfplay~ object playback 4 seperate audio files? (at present they are all mono)
- If not, does anyone know how I can compile the 4 mono samples into a 4 channel sample? - again, all my experience using audio editors has been mono / stereo, so its not a process I'm too familiar with.
I'd be very grateful for any help.
thanks very much
