smoothing or not?


well, when putting a live.dial or such things in front of a MSP signal input (like for *~ second input, or filter frequency input) should I use signal routing (with a line~) for smoothing or float routing?
I mean for MIDI control smoothing would be beneficial I think? What about for clip envelopes and automation from Live? What to prefer?

If you want it really smoothed in the signal domain, you’ll have to do that yourself. No matter how smooth your MIDI device is, the time interval of the MIDI will always be slower than the sample rate of your audio device. So line~/curve~ is probably what you want to do.

Thanks for your thoughts …

Yes, for MIDI control and mousing this is the beter solution? What about automation – this will not conflict with Live’s automation of params?
Any info about that?
