Soundboard & puredata


#1

Is it possible to use a soundboard directly on organelle without a pc?


#2

Can you be more specific about ‘soundboard’?


#3

I already have a midiman immagine
a M-audio Audiophile immagine and I need them both in my setup because I don’t have a midi merger.
Moreover I need to increase the number of audio input, so any simple solution would be blessed.


#4

so you want to use an external audio interface with the Organelle?

yes this can be done, assuming your audio interface is class compliant

Ive covered it in this topic:

just beware, USB is going to be slower than using an on-board soundcard, so you might have to increase the buffer sizes, which will increase latency a bit too.
(its not a big thing… just something to be aware of)

:slightly_smiling_face: Wonderfull! (Sorry that I looked for the answer but I missed it)
You’re so kind and I want to take advantage, my last question is: is there an agile option to add audio inputs, that you consider better (no latency) than external soundboard? I mean, am I the only who wants to exploits more than 2 audio input?


#6

well, by definition adding something external is always going to add latency :wink:

… but you really you need to try it, how much latency/buffer sizes you required is partly down to your audio interface, see if it acceptable.
(Ive used a Zoom H5 for the organelle and it was fine)

your other option is to use an external mixer to mix down to 2 channels input, but thats not really the same thing :wink:
