      hi,
      i would like translate the flux of a signal in max value in reel time i use the snapshot~ object with 1 like argument.Have you a better solution??
      thanks

      this is the explanation of my problem in max language.Thanks for all .

      faster than snapshot 1 ms and in realtime - no.
      with buffering the audio first - yes.

      As you keep the word transcription, which you think is something
      everybody should know (but doesn't), its not explaining more of your
      problem than before.
      If you tell us what you want to do with a "transcribed" value, it might
      be easier to help out.
      If you feed the snapshot~ with an audible signal (sound or music) and
      you expect a random value between the +- of the peak value, then
      snapshot~ is what you want. I don't know for what this should be good
      though, I guess you expect something else...
      Just some guesses: You want the average of the value, or you want the
      level of the signal (average of the absolute value) or you want some
      envelope following...???
      snapshot~ 1 in general is not a very good idea, it eats cycles like a
      Tyrannosaurus Rex would eat young musicians...

      thanks for your advanced answer stephan.
      i have a bad english and i have difficulty to explain my problem.
      i use ms pinky vinyles which are vinyles just send a signal.1 when normal playing -1 when reverse playing. But with scratch techniques the signal change everytime. I want scale the variation of this audio signal in max value in realtime,that's why i use the snapshot~ object.But maybe there is a less expensive way for the Cpu??
      thanks

      In principle there is nothing wrong with snapshot~, but if you snap it
      every millisecond you create a lot of data for the scheduler and it
      might not be able to follow. Just do not use it faster than you would be
      able to follow with your own human reactions. Maybe 10 ms or 50 ms,
      depending on the intended use might be already appropriate.
      If you just want to grab the switch, look at edge~ it will only output a
      bang when there is a change from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0, maybe in combination
      with change~, the helpfiles for these objects should get you going.
