retrieve function from [function]

September 11, 2013 | 10:32 am

Hi All,

Is it possible in any way, to draw a function in the [function] object, and then retrieve a mathematical function/expression that would give the same results? As I am not good with math, it is easier to get what I want from drawing it, but I would like not to use a lot of UI objects in my patch. :)

does it make sense?

All the best,
Lasse

Depends on what you’re using the function object for; if you’re feeding it to line~ / curve~, you can simply intercept the line-formatted message coming out when you bang function.

so the thing is that I use a function with in the "curve" mode, so it makes a logarithmic / exponential growth.. except there’s still only two points.

so if I bang function, i get a format that kind of resembles a linear growth. what I want is to draw a function in function, and then get the expression something like pow(x, y)..
