Device Overview

Name/Version: Mix Matcher 1.0.1
Author: Funkatronics  
Description: Mix Matcher is a mix referencing tool that allows users to compare their work to other tracks and/or pink noise. This patch uses Live 10's new audio routing features to allow users to route audio into the plugin from 2 tracks within the Live set. This way users can easily line up reference material with their arrangement and reference it with the plugin's audio.

Simply place Mix Matcher on the track you wish to compare (typically the Master) and place your reference material into 2 separate tracks in your live set. Route these tracks into Mix Matcher and you are ready to go.

Mix Matcher is also great for comparing specific tracks in the mixing process such as your kick drum and sub bass.


This patch was inspired by:
- LAEX's referencer reference patch: (http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device/3681/referencer-reference-patch)
- Abletons native "Spectrum" device - Mix Matcher's UI and FFT algorithm were designed to mimic this device.


Changelog

1.0.1 - 2019-01-11
Fixed
- Issue where the device would corrupt Live's undo history due to misused scripting names and parameter visibility. Loading the plugin or changing audio inputs still produces an "Undo Change" in the undo history.

1.0.0 - 2018-03-24
Added
Initial Release


The above format is based on Keep a Changelog (http://keepachangelog.com/en/1.0.0/) and this project adheres to Semantic Versioning (http://semver.org/spec/v2.0.0.html).

Nice work!

Thanks broah!

Just noticed how similar this was to MULTI ANALYSER XL by ISOTONIK. Have you seen this?

@broah, Yes that device is actually what inspired me to make Mix Matcher. I was so disappointed by that plugin that I just had to make my own =)

Multi Analyzer uses an incorrect FFT algorithm and (when I used it) it wouldn't let you analyze the audio of the track that the plugin was placed on. This really bugged me, so I made my own. In my testing, Mix Matcher also uses significantly less CPU, so that is another reason I prefer it.

It looks like Multi Analyzer has been updated since I used it, so maybe these issues were fixed.

Thanks for your comment!


Ah, gotcha. Well fantastic then! :)

Great device! This is really helpful. I noticed that it adds some internal messages to Live's undo history. I see you fixed a similar bug with your VU Meter device. Would you be able to update this one, too? Thanks!

@tmoore, I fixed the majority of the undo history issues in version 1.0.1. However, in order to perform the audio routing in this device, live.object is used to set the audio inputs to the plugin~ object. So when the device is loaded, or the user selects a new audio source for the A or B input, the live.object updates the audio input and creates an "Undo Change" in the undo history representing this change.

Unfortunately, this is the default behavior of live.object and I cannot find a way to change this. If anyone has any ideas on how to get around this, please reach out to me!

If you need to undo though Mix Matcher's "Undo Change" you can, you just may need to reload the plugin or reset your input selection. I apologize for this inconvenience, and I will continue to look for a solution to this problem. The rest of the weird undo history messages have been fixed so hopefully this version works better for you.

Thanks!

Brilliant, thanks so much!
