spat.oper path recording

Author 3 Subscribed Users |

I’m learning to use spat.oper and wish to record mouse paths of a given source. Is there a quick way to do it? Or will I have to output the messages via ‘zl reg’ with bangs into some data storing object? This is just my first idea of how to record the space paths at message-rate (I don’t need audio rate, I guess).

Thank you

Hi Gato,

Unfortunately there is no “out-of-the-box” way to do so.
[spat.oper] has no such recording capabilities.

So you would indeed have to rely on data storing objects to record your trajectories.
You can find rough examples in Spat tutorial #14 (using [mtr] object) or in tutorial #18 (using [coll] files).

Of course other solutions (either audio-rate or control-rate) are also possible.

Finally, another option is to use the ToscA plugin (also available on forumnet) which allows you to send the [spat.oper] data to a Digital Audio Workstation (e.g. ProTools, Logic, etc.) where you can store and playback your data.

Hi T.
Spat tutorials?, I didn’t know such a thing existed!. Where can they be founded?, I looked all over and couldn’t find them. This could help a lot with my projects.

Hi Nico,

If you look at your “ircam-spat” folder (wherever it is),
you should see a “ircam-spat/examples/tutorials” folder.

Otherwise, launch the “Ircam Spat Overview.maxpat” patcher
which gives you quick access to various ressources (tutorials, help patch, etc.)

In theory the “Ircam Spat Overview.maxpat” should appear in your Max/MSP “Extras” menu.
If not, you may have a look at “Spat4-ReleaseNotes.pdf” for instructions on ‘proper’ installation of Spat.
