mc.adc~ Reference

Multichannel audio input and on/off

mc.adc~

Description

The mc.adc~ ("analog-to-digital converter") object outputs a multichannel signal with audio from hardware input devices.

Examples

Arguments

inputs [symbol]

Optional

By default, mc.adc~ outputs a multichannel signal consisting of audio from hardware input devices, starting a logical channel 1.

If a symbol is provided as the first argument to a mc.adc~ object, its output will come from a named inport port in the Max mixer. If mc.adc~ instances in a patcher hierarchy share the same name they will use the same mixer input port.
