dbtoa

Convert a deciBel value to linear amplitude

Description

dbtoa performs deciBel-gain to linear-amplitude conversion.

Arguments

None.

Messages

bang The most currently stored linear amplitude value is sent out the outlet.
int dB-gain/attenuation [int]
A gain/attenuation in deciBels. The corresponding linear amplitude value is sent out the outlet.
float dB-gain/attenuation [float]
A gain/attenuation in deciBels. The corresponding linear amplitude value is sent out the outlet.
list list of gain/attention values [list]
A list of gain/attenuation values in deciBels. Corresponding linear amplitude values for each list item are sent out the outlet.
set dB-gain/attenuation [float]
A gain/attenuation in deciBels. The corresponding linear amplitude value is calculated but not output until a bang is received.
