Converting a signal into MAX data

December 30, 2007 | 8:28 pm

Hello,

Is there an object which can, say, convert the continuous oscillations of the cycle~ object between -1 and 1 into a continuously varying MAX message which varies between -1 an 1 synchronously?

I have tried using the snapshot object but this seems to be given very low priority and will stop working if you’re scrolling a window for instance.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

use the [ number~ ] object. Its in the object bar on top of a new patcher window, or you can just create a blank object box and type in [ number~ ] .

You can adjust the frequency of the signal measurement by selecting the number object and then GET INFO.

hope that helps

…also don’t forget [capture~]. It has helped me a lot in situations
were I didn’t really understand what was going on.

Happy new ears! (Glad for the opportunity to quote John Cage).

Snapshot should work pretty well, at least if Overdrive is on.

This actually a FDR quote when asked the difference between republicans and
democrats.

Have a look at your performance settings. snapshot~ should be fine if
overdrive is on…
