Scale formula clarification

Scale formula clarificationThere are two posts discussing the formula for the scale object, but none really answer the question posted. If the formula from the reference is: Where: My question: Also, what are the operators in the formula? I’m guessing: Anyone dug in deep enough into their own scaling object?

I found something similar elsewhere, not the Max object, but it seemed like it did the same thing, no exponential element though. So, if scale has a b c d for low/high input/output, and v is the value to scale, the formula was: c + (dc)*((va)/(ba)) I don’t know about the scaling exponent, whether it’s applied after all this, or is worked into the formula somehow. And I’m not sure this is even the right formula for [scale], but it works in the patch below: – Pasted Max Patch, click to expand. –

Fantastic, thanks Klaus! Too bad your ll.og abstractions don’t show up in a forum search – could have saved you the trouble… Those are really great, and likely useful for my students as well. Cheers!
