Hey guys, Processing newbie here but I've started getting the hang of some things.
I've created a lovely processing visualisation using Minim, which is reacting fantastically well with the microphone. The thing is, I don't want the audio being taken from the microphone anymore, I want it from the output coming from another program (For use with Ableton Live 8 primarily, but iTunes and stuff for prototyping too).
This is for a live installation piece I'm working on, so the music generated in Ableton would influence the visuals. It seems fairly simple but I haven't found any other threads about this. Thank you!
this installed, turn on JackPilot. Albeton (or any music interface for
that matter) must be turned OFF. This fix won't be possible in iTunes to
my knowledge (I'll talk about that later on, but anyways, let's carry
on. This 'JackPilot' allows you to route connections between apps. Open
Albeton, go to Prefs > Audio and select the output 'Jack Server'.
This sends the Ableton output to whatever is on the other end, so
processing. When this was written, Processing doesn't allow changes to
where it gets the audio, so you'll have to go to Settings (or System
Prefs or whatever) and set the default input to Jack Server. This
connects up Albeton and Processing.
TROUBLESHOOTING: No sound comes out of the speakers! With
Windows, you can tick 'Listen to this' (or something like that, I don't
use windows) in System Settings > Sound > Input > Jack Server
> Preferences, which, as long as the System Default output is set to
Speakers or Headphones, should work. With Mac, you can download a tool called LineIn, which does this for you. With Linux, use this in the terminal: pactl load-module module-loopback
I wanna use iTunes Erm... You could use a manual approach. Use this setup of wires:
Headphones -> Splitter Splitter -> Headphones/ Output Splitter -> Line In
This should work fine.
Hope this helps.
