generating list for multislider

August 5, 2008 | 10:26 am

hi,
i don’t get it:
I’ve got a 512-Multislider for wavetable-drawing. Drawing and synthesis works fine. Now, I want a random-control to set the 512 sliders. That means, multislider neads a list of 512 Elements. I’ve already tried to collect the (with uzi 512 generated -) Random-values indexed in "coll". But Mutlislider can not handle "dump-outs".
I just don’t get it to generate a "simple" list of 512 Elements for my multislider. any idea? big thx.

Coll’s dump is not a list, it’s the contents of the coll output sequentially.

Max objects can only handle lists of 256 elements. If I were you I’d go to maxobjects.com and look for [list-accum]. It can handle arbitrary list lengths, though it might be 4.5/4.6 only

I couldn’t tell if the use of coll was required or not, so here’s a
version with and without coll:

thx at all! "zl group" does the job!
I thought zl operations are also limitted to 256 items… well seems like not.
big thx!
