Multichannel live input into multigrid

+1 vote
Hi Everyone,

This should hopefully be a relatively simple one, but I've been struggling to figure this out for some time so I thought I'd ask.

I have a bunch of patches that are 4-channel in, and 4 channel out that I would like to use with the multigrid, in a similar way to the 4-channel example multigrid in the Kyma folder.  However I am using live audio input rather than samples. These patches each have 4 x individual audio inputs that are processed in seperate chains before terminating in an Output 4 object.

The input options in the multigrid provide mono and stereo options for the various channels, but how do I utilise 4 channels of live input on the multigrid?

Also, I'd like to switch in further individual processing of these four channels via another multigrid track. How do I make all four of the 'audio in' objects into replaceable inputs to enable this? Or if the answer is to use a multi-multi object for the replaceable input, how do I split the four channels from there to travel down separate chains?

Thanks so much for any advice

Hi Jason,

Here's an example Multigrid that takes 4 mic inputs, processes them, and has 4 audio outputs. As you suspected, you can use a MonoToMultichannel with a SelectableInput as its input (and set Channel to ?ChannelNumber).

Thank you so much for your response and for providing an example Multigrid - that's very helpful! I've tested it, and it is indeed processing my audio in 4 channels. However, this configuration creates 4 identical signal chains, each with adjustable parameters, but I'm looking for a method to create 4 individual/unique chains of processing. Is this possible?  I've tried using a SplitSurroundFilePlayer Quad as a replaceable input as in your example, but when sending it through multiple chains it just sends Ch1 to all of them, rather than fanning them out.
