slider and mouse

September 15, 2006 | 2:12 pm

I realized i’ve never used mouse for live peformance but external
controllers only. Unfortunately, i’ll have to do without for the next
days, so i wonder : is there a slider, or a trick, to avoid value gaps ?
Using multislider or gain~, if you click at the opposite of the current
state, or anywhere, it’ll update here, causing huge drops… Using a
ramp won’t help : Is there a way to only ‘catch’ the head of a slider ?

old slider……

Thanks, Kasp. I’ve just tried what you said, but if you click [slider]
anywhere *then drag*, it’ll follow. You’re not forced to drag, of
course, so it’s a little bit safer than the other ways… I’m trying to
manage something with picture based slider (unselecting option ‘Knob
Jumps To Click Location’) but it’s not as handy as multisliders.

cheers

of course i know – and for sure you can build something with LCD etc
etc – but the object is here and handy – beside, well the purpose of
a slider is somewhat into the possibility to drag it….
somehow…;-)
