ramping up the gain before the fader

Is it possible for a file to increase in gain before it reaches the fader? I want to make a patch where the user needs to use the gain slider to reduce the volume of a file before it distorts, so I need the file to be amplified gradually before it reaches the fader…

Have you tried the *~ object? stick one in before the gain~ object.

How about an LFO, I’ve made you a basic one. Or you could use the function object to make a user defined modulation. Have a look at the tutorials, there’s a lot of good stuff in there. Best way to learn basic stuff like this and remember its all just numbers ;)

Or take a look at line~

The line~ object works well here. Is there a way to link the fader position to the new value (i.e. the value I have currently set at 120) so that when the fader is low the new value becomes higher? Or, more generally, is there any way to link the fader position to the values for the line~ ramp time?
