I need some help on automating an xfade object.

I would like to run it up and down between 0.3 and 0.7.

Therefore, I need a floating point precision which gives me two decimal numbers after the comma.

I think one could use metro attached to a slider which is set to a specific range and which gives data to scale.
Any ideas?

You want to crossfade(one time) or oscillate(back and forth)?

Floats are floats, they have more precision than what shows up (if you see 1.1 it’s really 1.1xxxxxx (if you drag the display window longer)).

Metro will give you a stepped effect (a movement per ‘bang’). Take a look at [line].

Yep, sounds like line is the way you want to go.
