Band Music Live

Hi, anyone has experience of how to connect music device with vvvv? so vvvv can receive the signal from guitar, drum and so on.

thanks

get a multi channel audio device and have look at the FFT nodes.

hi, can u explain more about multi channel audio device?

thanks

hi, and one more thing is how to get the signal by FFT? (can use rs232 / audioin ?)

talking about hardware from a vendor like M-Audio or Edirol etc. because i assume you want to do this live on a mobile computer that has only one stereo input, you’d be able to have different channels for only 2 instruments (respectively mics). you want more, you have to get a device with multiple audio channels.

the FFT-node has to be connected to the AudioIn-node. have a look at its helppatch.

hi,

so when done with the connection music device to computer through usb, we can get the signal from AudioIn node (just need to select the right option driver).

if i am using multiple audio channel, it still connect to computer by one usb so it can only get 1 signal and just play with right and left FFT, is it right?

if i want to differentiate the signal do i need to use more than one usb? (one for each instrument)

thanks

no.
the audio signals are converted to a digital signal inside the external device (with a far superiour D/A converter than your internal device) and is all transmitted together in the USB or Firewire (better).
as everything in vvvv (and windows?) is stereo based you’ll have to use multiple AudioIn and FFT nodes.
