for a large installation i need to playback 8 mono wave-tracks to 8 active speakers contained in pipes. i am currently testing the setup with an audio capelet. for the moment i have been using puredata and the readsf~ object.
since the 8 tracks have to run in sync i will merge them into an 8 channel wave file for playback.
i have the following questions:
- i plan to run 30m of cable between bela and the active speakers, anything i have to be aware of? (except for potential noise, i.e. if the output gets loaded too much or something...) i tested with 16m of cable and that seemed to work just fine.
- i see there is an example in c++ here: http://docs.bela.io/sample-streamer_2render_8cpp-example.html
would that easily be expandable to streaming an 8-channel wav file to the 8 audio capelet outputs?
the file will be 8 channels and approximately 15min long and needs to be looped over and over, so maybe the c++ example is actually easier to work with since with readsf~ i need to bang an |open filename.wav( message before playing back, and so continuous playback is tricky. (i think i could cook something up with two readsf~ objects and the rightmost outlet of one into the playback start of the second and vice-versa)
thanks for any insights!
