    Hey guys,
    I don't know if a Quartz Composer question would fit under Programming, but here it is.
    Does Quartz Composer give the developer a way to handle multichannel audio? Or does it only handle audio from one input?

    The reason I ask is because I'm planning on setting up a live audio visualizer for a band, and wanted each instrument to have the ability to control a different part of the visualization. I have a multi channel audio interface, so I just need to know if there's a way to access each of the 12 audio channels from within Quartz.

    Thanks!

    Believe I may have found a solution after looking more closely!
    By selecting the Audio Input, I am able to select the Audio Device and Input Source underneath Patch Inspector. I'm unable to test it for sure until a few days, but it looks like it is able to handle multiple channels, or at least multiple audio devices.
