There seems to be a problem…
So, I decided to learn Max a little bit again. There’s a problem, though…
When I try to multiply the signal by the envelope, nothing happens. I don’t get any output at all. I have the sustain set to the highest level possible, and the envelope is set to be the multiplier, while the signal is the object being multiplied. I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong, but I still can’t seem to get any signal through when using the *~ object. The only way I’ve been able to get a signal through is without using any sort of envelope. i.e. The note sustains forever at a velocity of 127.
can’t help this without your patch
I’m not sure how to upload the patch. My computer won’t allow it for some reason.
The patch is like this:
mtof / 127
"notein" goes to "mtof" and "/ 127". "/ 127" goes to the right inlet of "*~ 0."
I really hope you guys can get something from this. I really want to work with M4L again.
Hi Guitar Guy
In your max patch, switch to edit mode. Then Edit>Copy Compressed
This saves it to the clipboard in a compressed format
Paste into the thread.
Is your envelope (in question) just the signal multiplier?
Send it over – If i can’t some one will sort it!
My envelope is just the signal multiplier.
I hope this helps.

what is your reasoning behind dividing the velocity by 127 (please don’t feel this is a trick question i am wondering, it may help)
also can you outline your expectations of this patch (again this is not a trick question)
I was just following this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2uUbKaZ_9E
That is where I figured to divide the velocity by 127.
According to the video I followed, it should give a simple sine wave with each note hit.
EDIT: It seems that is where I was messing up. I didn’t need to divide the velocity by 127. Thanks, guys!
ha (not meant horribly) one simple little thing you have over looked – a common mistake
you have not made the / 127 a floating point (he mentions in the video at about 1min ‘notice it’s all floating point’)
this means add a decimal point after the 127 —- / 127.
let me know if its resolved :-)
