grid lines > 6 in waveform~? nitpicking inside.

December 17, 2009 | 12:41 pm

Working on a full featured sampler/beat shuffle skipper thing. I divide the size of the buffer by a number and send it to the grid size of waveform~. Unfortunately large numbers such as eight just shows four lines. Sure, the grid sections ARE actually there, but I can’t SEE them darn it! Is this just an unfortunate set back or is there some magical option to change to make more lines appear. I’m too lazy to glance at a waveform~ with 16 slices and have to remember there are 4 extra slices between each line. Don’t make me think, Max. You’re the computer here!

That’s odd, it seems you have to increase the size of waveform to see more grid lines, pretty inconvenient really.

But, you can use a multislider behind it as a workaround, it actually looks nicer to me as well.

That’s a pretty dope solution. I actually already have a multislider on top of waveform to display the playback position. Multislider & waveform: Max’s answer to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

You can actually just use a line $1 message into waveform to display the playback position, but again, I think it looks nicer with a multislider.

Also if you want to draw your own grid, you might want to do that with lcd instead.
