Late Max 5 feature request: scale~

March 20, 2008 | 3:57 am

I know this is very late, but could we have a scale~ object in the
canonical distribution. Recent thread on LFOs reminded me how much
this is needed.

What, lp.scamp~ doesn’t count as canonical?

Sorry, Peter butfree is not quite the same thing as included. Firefox
is free, but as long as IE is setup as the default for people’s web-
browsers, there’s a certain portion of the audience who will never
download it, even though it does offer lots of cool features and is
generally more secure. I think that by adding it to the canonical
distribution it makes it easier to stumble upon, and I think that’s a
good thing.

There are three versions of the same object on MaxObjects.com
(f0.scale~, tap.scale~, lp.scamp~, and I wrote an abstraction version
called PM.Scale~) so it seems like something that enough people may be
using. This is something that is so useful for doing LFOs, etc. that
it really does warrant being in the canonical distribution.

But the question didn’t read "included", nor "free". It read "canonical".

So the question reduces to how you define "canonical". While you’re at it, you might want to define "is".-)

Lp.scamp~ is on every Max install that I’ve worked with since July 2001. That’s more canonical than one or two objects coming out of Clementina Street. At least in my book.

Mileage will definitely vary on this one.
