TTtrigger project is designed for playing sound effects in connection with a theater or other show. The concept is to be able to play various sounds effects or music out to different hardware ports on e.g. a multi channel audio interface. The sounds could thereafter be mixed together on a analog mixer allowing fast and easy control of audio levels on different speaker sets.
And example of use:
Lets say you are a sound technician for a theater and they thought it would be nice to have two stages for differenct locations. You have acquired an 8 port audio box, a mixer and 2 sets of speakers (one set for each stage). You could now dedicate channels, as follows:
1+2: Background music, stage 1
3+4: Sound fx, stage 1
5+6: Background music, stage 2
7+8: Sound fx, stage 2
It would then be easy to control volume, fade in, fade out and pan sounds from stage 1 to stage 2.
TTtrigger is designed so it would be easy to start any sound and kill any current playing sound - either with the mouse or with the keyboard.
The name TTtrigger comes from the name of the theater I was working with. Its name is "Teatro Technicus", often shorted as TT. (Technicus is a reference to the fact that it is housed at the Technical University of Denmark). The "trigger"-part is a reference to triggering audio samples. Simple...
