Multiplexer

Sorry I haven't been doing this since december (I was hired to do linear editing for the last few months, 10 hour days.) Anyways I want to get back into Vjing or at least finish my experimental music dvd. Simple question I think. I am creating a mask with a multiplexer....when I puplish for vdmx I usually use number to create a slider....I have 6 images...I want to trigger them with midi keys instead...I create using boolean and it only toggled btwn source 0 and 1....I want all six to have a separate on and off switch if you will....I am still on leopard...sorry....please let me know if this is possible and how....sorry for probably a simple question.

Re: Multiplexer

Hi this sounds a very simple problem, can you spell out the logic a bit more clearly, please? It sounds like you are describing a standard multiplexer patch but I assume that is not what you need.

Describe as in, input: (range) [0-5], output: 0[bool], 2[bool], 3[bool]…5[bool], where the input is an index on multiplexer, would describe a multiplexer with 6 outputs.

input [bool] output 0[bool], 1[bool],… 5[bool] where changing (toggling) the input advances the index on a multiplex patch, would describe a input splitter patch (boolean setting) connected to a counter patch feed to a range patch feed to a multiplexer.

Re: Multiplexer

Thanks for the reply. This didn't quite answer my question though. My question is in regards to preparing the patch for a qcFX in vdmx. I want the multiplexer to have buttons for all 6 sources, instead of a slider....how do you do that?

here is my example....it is a simple mask that I wish to trigger with midi or keyboard so when I play notes the it will trigger different parts of the picture.

Thanks in advance for any help

Re: Multiplexer

I had a similar setup and couldn't work it out how to achieve this, I can take no credit for this as someone else switch me on to this and I use it a lot. What I have added is a Math expressions patch that converts boolean inputs into a number. If you then create buttons in VDMX you can set them to mutex so that only one button can be on at a time.

Hope this helps. Steve

I know this is years later, but THANK YOU. This helped me a ton.
