Suggestion for [function]

February 20, 2009 | 12:27 am

Hi C74 – hope all is well. This is just an idea I had about the [function] object.

Perhaps you could add a "grid" attribute to function, where lines could be drawn in on the graph in x and/or y planes. These grids could be colored every X amount of spaces, the same way you can vary the color of a multislider. This would make automation of longer phrases more accurate metrically rather than just drawing things in as a kind of guessing game.

I don’t think it would be very complex to implement, and if I knew a bit more about C and GUIs, I’d try to code it myself. Anyways, hope you look into this. I think it would be a much appreciated addition to the object.

You can also check out my rude patch that uses lcd to add gridlines that follow the zoom. (EJ’s version is inherently better and richer in features, but it seems a bit buggy at the moment).
