Re: audio processor patch

I guess you are using Leopard.

The patch you ask about has been rendered redundant in SL. Doesn't get installed.

If you make a composition from Template choosing Music Visualizer in Leopard then you can include the Audio Processor patch.

It basically takes only one type of input, the audio spectrum structure, usually from the Audio Input patch raised by and included within the Music Visualizer template, a good place to start. No file path required.

The resulting composition can be placed within your Library/Compositions and being created from the MV Template is automatically protocolled to run in iTunes and will be populated in the iTunes visualizer list.

Definitely no need to add file paths, at all.

Just raise as Visualizer in iTunes and play a tune, Eleonara.

"The patch you ask about has been rendered redundant in SL. Doesn't get installed."

In a stock SL install, I'm pretty sure it ends up in Library/Graphics/QuartzComposerPatches along with Track Info (HUD) ... I'm booted in an install that didn't have any "migration", and that's where it's usually installed, so that it loads for all Users.

Re: audio processor patch

Doh :-) it is to be found in my iMac's 10.6.x System/Library/Graphics/Quartz Composer Patches, but doesn't [or didn't show up] in the QC Patch Inspector.

My bad [in part], but still doesn't show up in the Patch Inspector. Neither does Track Info [HUD}

Time to [at least] do a rebuild of permissions from my Boot DVD that came with this machine.

Sorry, Eleonora, didn't mean to point you in the wrong direction on that one point.

Do please tell if the other advice helped to point you in the right direction, it should have done, especially regarding the appropriate use of the input that the Audio Processor patch makes available, namely to not take a text string for a file path, but merely to take the Audio Spectrum structure input that is automatically made available for you when you either start making a visualizer from the Template route or choose to protocolise your composition to be a Music Visualizer.

Just given my system a repair disk and repair disk permissions from the install DVD and guess what, no Audio Processor in the Patch Inspector.

[Proving, once more, that repairing permissions and disks doesn't cure all oddities one gets on OS X].

Moving this enquiry regarding missing items in Patch Inspector to a new thread.

Re: audio processor patch

Well , GT, thanks for pointing out this and disabusing me of a total misapprehension on my part; do see my other thread commenced in regards of the fact that I now find upon closer examination that I have several such patches unavailable [is it framework related, still scratching around for an answer to this problem].

I think Eleonora's main problem has been that of trying to use a file path upon an input that only takes a spectrum structure

Re: audio processor patch

Hi! I don't have the patch music visualizer, I've tryied this way: Audio input (set in built in) connected with spectrum to Audio processor's audio spectrum, then connected lows to x position, mids to y position, highs to volume of 3D sound player patch, set the music location on my desktop, but I can't ear the music. I've also tryied other connections but it doesen't work... wat to do to reproduce music?
