fluidAllOut

fluidAllOut — Collects all audio from all Fluidsynth engines in a performance

Syntax

aleft, aright fluidAllOut

Description

Collects all audio from all Fluidsynth engines in a performance

Performance

aleft -- Left channel audio output.

aright -- Right channel audio output.

Invoke fluidAllOut in an instrument definition numbered higher than any fluidcontrol instrument definitions. All SoundFonts send their audio output to this one opcode. Send a note with an indefinite duration to this instrument to turn the SoundFonts on for as long as required.

In this implementation, SoundFont effects such as chorus or reverb are used if and only if they are defaults for the preset. There is no means of turning such effects on or off, or of changing their parameters, from Csound.

Examples

Here is an example of the fluidAllOut opcodes. It uses the file fluidAllOut.csd.

<CsoundSynthesizer>
<CsOptions>
; Select audio/midi flags here according to platform
-odac  -+rtmidi=virtual -M0    ;;;realtime audio out and realtime midi in
;-iadc    ;;;uncomment -iadc if realtime audio input is needed too
; For Non-realtime ouput leave only the line below:
;-o fluidAllOut.wav -W ;;; for file output any platform
