I have a question regarding rate~ object. If you open reference page of the rate~ object, you can see an example patch at the bottom. I am wondering how do you calculate those indexes which are stored in the coll object and are representing a multiplier for the scaling of a phasor frequency.
Don’t worry – it’s not rocket science. You choose a notevalue – say, 4n (by convention, that’s what most people would use) and assume that it’s the base for timing differences. If a quarter note is 1.0, then the rate object would have to be running at .5 (one-half the speed) to traverse the distance for a half note or double the rate to traverse the distance for an 8th note, etc. You just get out your calculator and run the numbers….
Thank you very much!
And how do I calculate the value for 1/8nt or 1/16nd for example?
Um… well, a dotted half note lasts one and one-half the length of an undotted half note, so….
