Hi,

How do I translate 16nd 8nt 16n etc to 1/8 – 1/12 – 1/16 etc.

Thanks

I assume this is for some display purpose.

Probably a coll lookup would be easiest.

You can also use two of the prototypes included with Max to do the conversion:

Regarding time formats it would be nice to have also support of "beats" as float.
Such values are especially used in M4L at many places.

For example, [translate notevalues beats] with input 16n would give 0.25.

Is there a technical reason why this is not implemented?

That makes sense. It’s on the list.

Thanks

Thanks

Anyone made a translation to fractions only, so I can display in live.dial

But keep in mind that dotted notes cannot be translated to fractions of the form 1/X.

For example, 16nd would be 3/32.

thanks,

what would 1/1T and 1/2D translate to?

1/1T = 1/1 * 2/3 = 2/3

1/2D = 1/2 + 1/4 = 3/4

so this would be right also?

Correct.

ehhm could you please help me do something similar for a really slow but still synced lfo?
several bars for one cycle would be cool!

thanks!

Durations of several bars cannot be represented as note values.
It must be handled with a multiplication factor, see f.e. the standard device ‘Max Api Ctrl1LFO’.
