as it seems not possible to use sound modules (like lfos etc.) for generating realtime sound in vvvv like in PD, we decided to use WAV loops in our projects.
I did a patch which contains 6 of vvvv
s wavplayer modules and each wavplayer plays one of the wav files (sizes from 2-10 mb / 44khz 16 bit) we want to use. the idea was that the different wav loops are faded in and out during the use of our installation, which would be no problem using the waveplayers volume and the play pin.
the problem is when I let all 6 wavplayers run at the same time my pc (notebook 512mb 1.73 GHZ Intel mobile) begins to cry and then finally to freeze, just about 4 wavplayers can be run simultaneous without trouble. the thing is that we might need about 10 loops played simultaneous at the peaktime and we also have our graphical output patches running on one pc.
therefore my question: Is there any other opportunity or patch in vvvv we could use for mixing up about 10 loops (maybe mp3…) or do we have to include another sound tool like reaktor or ableton live or maybe PD ?
thousand thanks for any help or comment !
enjoy the day!
