I’m quite happy with [line]‘s functionality, just that for my issue I’d also like to define the steps it should take to get from 1 to 100
"start at 1, then progress to 100, taking steps of 10" … (time not even being of relevance in this case)
Do you want it to ramp smoothly and then momentarily stop at each step, or jump immediately to each step? If the former, check out [bline] with multi-sement lists. If the latter, you can just sequence values of 10, 20, 30, etc, or use something like an [incdec] –> [* 10].
line takes a second argument for time grain, won’t that work? You’d need to match it to your ramp time, but that should be an easy calculation.
thanks for all the suggestions!
@bkshepard: yea, had a look at [bline] before, doesn’t suit (for I’m looking for the jump-without-stop method. and [incdec] would be quite cumbersome for I’m looking for an automation that takes care of several ramps (keeping my bangs at a minimum)
@raja: [trunc~] is indeed an awesome tool :) too bad there seems to be no equivalent in max. what I didn’t mention (for I was roughly just looking for the right object) ist that I’ll be working with floats within the range < 1
@seejayjames: you’re totally right with that. I guess it won’t hurt to stick with [line], it does suit my intention best – and doing some basic maths won’t hurt anyone. grin
all the best
