No problem! Also take note there is the CDP tool for Renoise ( CDP Interface | Renoise ).
CDP originally offers different possibilities to manipulate multi-channel files. Unfortunately these are not supported right now in the tool though some of the multi channel processes can still be accessed from the EXE filter menu in the gui. Often the channel amount has automatically been restricted to the amount of 2 or less, as inputting more channels would throw an error anyway, but perhaps if you can fathom the code, you can remix in the support?
There’s some cool processing options available ( CDP MULTICHANNEL Functions );
CDP MULTI-CHANNEL Functions
(with Command Line Usage)
Unlike most other CDP process groups, there is no group program called ‘MULTICHANNEL’. The functions listed below are all separate programs, except for the TANGENT and TRANSIT groups. There is also the MULTI-CHANNEL TOOLKIT group of file-handling functions, documented separately. Various other multi-channel functions have also been documented elsewhere and these are listed below under “Other Multi-Channel Processes”.
The multi-channel facilities described here generate and manipulate multi-channel wav (or aiff) soundfiles. The (N) channels of these files can be sent to (N) loudspeakers arranged in an arc or a ring around the listener. In the descriptions and explanations given, a clockwise ring arrangement is assumed.
However, it is not essential. For example:
- The loudspeakers can be arranged in any spatial location or orientation desired.
- The output channels can be assigned to loudspeakers in any way desired.
- The output soundfile can be converted to an Ambisonic or some other format, using the Multi-channel Toolkit.
If you do not have a multi-channel soundcard or multiple speakers, there is still much that can be done with these programs. Many processes distibute segments of sound over multi-channel space, but these channels can be split into separate files via HOUSEKEEP CHANS 2 or CHANNELX and re-combined by mixing or interleaving, via INTERLX or SUBMIX INTERLEAVE.
