a bank of enveloppes

    Jun 02 2009 | 2:22 pm
    I would like to be able to
    use a bank of differentu
    kind of envelopes
    stored the in a coll object
    to send them to the function object
    Has someone done already this kind of things
    in a more constructing way as using by hands the object preset
    with function ?

      I would use either preset as you said, which is the simplest way of doing it, or pattrstorage. pattrstorage is great since you can interpolate between settings. all depends on what you want to do with it in the end. in any case here is a quick example. load the attached .xml file via the read command then click on the message box feeding the line object. the four states saved in pattrstorage are the same as the ones in the preset.

      This is how I do it!
      This patch has some thing more than the preset saver, but the process is numbered!
      It's a Max 5.0.x patch.

      what is common around here is to use a [zl reg] to drive a [line~].
      the idea to store presets in a [coll] seems absolutely right.

      Thanks for your answer
      Rui your patch seems to be a good
      way to work but I did not get
      how you name your enveloppes ?
      In fact in my question there is two questions
      - the ways of storing enveloppes (techniccal problem)
      - what is a good bank of enveloppe wich becomes a musical
      problem Emmanuel Nunes worked on it at Ircam he used 16 differents
      enveloppes for his work Lichtung
      so to resume what would be a kind of exhaustive shape's bank
      to control synthesis ?
      Thanks and good music

      Dear Rui,
      an other question
      when you click on "open audio file"
      the open dialog folder does not see
      sound files de you know the message
      to be able to load them ?

      If you follow the "step 2" of my patch, you can see that all points are sended to a pack object. that pack object creates a list with 3 elements: 1º is the index of your preset, 3º is an symbol containing all point from function object (it's a symbol because it's on commas) and the 2nd element of that list is your preset's name.
      [pack 0 unnamed preset]
      So you just have to send some name to the second inlet of pack object to give it a name.
      Check this!
      Right click on [opendialog] object and select "open help"
      In the help patch you can see that you can sen the message "sound" instead of "open" to open only sound files.
      Realy? I don't think! That never worked on my computers since Max 4, but on Macs could work... I don't know!
      Here, that message opens an dialog that let you search for *.* files... I've never understand that! but you can try!
      Hope it help something.
