How to add infile 2?
« on: August 22, 2023, 02:07:29 PM »
hi, I am newbie using Soundshaper 6. I have a problem trying to get results with spectral process. I click on cell a_1 and select in menu "load soundfile", I choose a wav file and it appears not in the cell but in the rectangle up. Then I click cell a_2 and choose another wav file. The second file replaces the first in the rectangle. I click again in cell a_1 and choose SPECTRAL. The situation in all efects is that the infile 2 it isnt choosen, it says "none". So, how to add infile 2? The pink window for load the second file doesnt appears. Please help.

Hi Phoenix,
The rows in Soundshaper's patch grid are chains of processes, each going from left to right. So your source should appear in A_0, not A_1, and when you've processed it, the output will be in A_1. (A_2 would be for the output of the next process, if any, not for the second input.) For your second input, place the cursor on cell B_0 and drag your second soundfile onto the screen (or use the file selector). Click again on cell A_0 and select the process that requires a second input. A red "ADD INPUT" box should appear. Click on cell B_0 to select it and click OK in the red box. If your process is spectral, B_0.wav will be automatically converted to B_0.ana behind the scenes.

Set your parameters on the parameter page and click RENDER to return to the main page. The output should be in cell A_1. For a spectral process, this will be colour-coded aqua and should again be auto-converted back to .wav to play it. However, you can also hit F9 to do an explicit ana-wav conversion, if you like. This would be worth doing if you save the process as a patch, for example.

Hope this helps.
