Arguments

Name Type Opt Description
base-value float or int opt Sets the base value. The default value is 0. If a signal is connected to the right inlet, the argument is ignored.

Messages

float exponent/base-value [float]
In left inlet: Sets the exponent. If there is a signal connected to the left inlet, a number received in the left inlet is ignored.

In right inlet: Sets the base value. If there is a signal connected to the right inlet, a number received in the right inlet is ignored.
signal In left inlet: Sets the exponent.

In right inlet: Sets the base value.
