EQ Gain Scaling

Hi guys

I have a problem with an EQ I’ve been building as part of an audio analyser patch. I’ve got the gain of each EQ band going from 1 to 16, but I want it so that the knob is central at unity gain, rather than round at 8 o clock like it is now. I’m still getting used to Max, so if anyone has any suggestions I’d be very grateful!

All the best!

this is probably the simplest way to do it– try using the decibel scale and have it so unity is halfway between max and min:

btw you probably could have a similar approach with your frequency parameter (look at [mtof]) so the resulting values are more useful…

Thanks very much! That’s more or less exactly what I’m looking for
