Easy question from a rookie..

May 17, 2010 | 2:03 am

Can’t figure this out. I have a number, call it "pitch", being constantly updated from a pitch~ object. I want a second number to display the current pitch (aka value of the first number) only when a bang goes off (instead of constantly). What’s the simplest way? Thanks.

Nevermind, duh. First number is hooked to right inlet of message, bang to left inlet, second number hooked to outlet. Easiest way right?

Slightly lighter weight would be to use int or float. The mild downside to using a message box is that it take time to draw the number. It might not seem like a big deal, but in a large patch, every cycle is precious.
