    Sound EQing

    by monsho » Fri Jun 13, 2008 4:58 pm

    Hi all,

    am wondering if anyone has any ideas about how to EQ the sound input so that we can select different bands of audio to be used for response. VDMX has a nice set up in that you can select different bands and set these to parameters, and I'd like to do something similar. At the minute we have a hardware mixer which filters out some of the bands (ie can concentrate on bass or highs). I thought it would be good to have another bit of software running which took the overall sound in, split the sound into different frequency bands and produced a midi signal out - this midi is then picked up by modul8 and assigned accordingly - for example scale or colour.

    has anyone done anything like this, or knows of a similar method to achieve this?

    Cheers

    rather than a basic mixer, you could use a graphic eq, or a fully parametric eq to process it. alterntively, you could use soundflower to re-route the audio to a max/msp or pd patch (or ableton or similar vst host) to do the filtering first then use that filtered audio in modul8. This is a significant downfall in the use of audio in modul8.

    Yeah, thought about using a MAX patch, will look at doing this...
