[counter] + [itable] = probabilities?

[counter] + [itable] = probabilities?

Hey there,

I was wondering if there’s anyway to get a [counter 15] object connected to a [itable] object with an x-axis of 16,
to spit out probabilities instead of the exact assigned number on that column of [itable]?

In other words, [bang]s into [itable] send out probabilities, which is what I want, but… in conjunction with a step-sequencer like fashion.

My suspicion is that there is no way to get [itable] to do this, but I thought I’d ask. Any workarounds greatly appreciated!

I don’t really understand what do you want to do ; try to explain it without [itable] as another approach might be simpler.

I have opened your patcher and I do not understand how you want to combine the two behaviors of itable.

Maybe you can provide an example of the kind of output you’d expect from a certain set of data contained in an itable ?

Could it be that what you want is two itable in series with the first one triggered by bangs and the second one triggered by the output of the first ?

Here’s one way of getting the result I was looking for.

I’m not saying it’s an efficient way of doing this, but… it’s the only way
my small brain could implement the concept in MAX.

If I’m lucky somebody will give it a look and enlighten me with
a better way of doing what this patch does.

Thanks for the help, everyone!

That should do the job…

I knew there was a way to use the random object to run probabilities,
but I’m not very good with math.

Thanks Nicolas!!
