Automation In Max MSP


    Dec 21 2007 | 9:57 pm
    Basically, I want a filter graph to follow a frequency automation over time. How do I do this? I need the number object thats connected to the frequency of the graph to change to specific numbers at certain time intervals. I want to be able to load different automations via the preset box.
    Much help would be appreciated!
    Regards,

      Oh, and I want the user to be able to 'draw' in the frequency automation over time on a multi level slider

      Arrgh, it wont let me edit, and it needs explaining again because I dont think the above made sense:
      I want the user to be able to 'map out' the frequency changes of the filter graph over time, perhaps with a multi level slider?. This means that if the multi level slider is connected to the number box which in turn is connected to the frequency inlet of the filter graph, it will change accordinlgy over time (in milliseconds).
      I want the preset box to be able to load plugins for the multi level slider as well.
      Thanks

      the preset box is pretty limited in what it can do. For storing the states of things you should look at pattrstorage. I will save the state of any named object. You can then save the state of your objects as a preset and then recall them at any time. It even interpolate between presets! To create a scripted time line of preset changes, look into "qlist".

      is it possible to get some sort of marker to represent the current position of the multislider?

      Another way of possibly storing your silder values is to put it through a sig~ and record into a buffer. This would be the solution I'd opt for because even though everyone on here suggests pattrstorage as a solution for everything. I haven't used it before because I'm lazy. Hope this helps.

      I need further help! The automation patch I have used that is based on dannys help file is flawed because when the number box attached to the s freq box has reached 1024, it resets to 0. This can cause uneccessary 'jumps' in the automation that can only be fixed if the performer draws in a very accurate line at the end that is equal to the start.
      My solution in theory is to 'oscillate' the automation. Meaning, once the number box reaches 1024, it counts down to 0. This would be perfect. But how do I do this?

      I suggest you look at the help file for [counter]. After that I suggest you take a look at the tutorials..

      I advice you to go true the tutorials to learn the basics of max. It takes some time but is absolutely worth it.
      I adjusted my previous example, hope it helps...:

      Thanks Danny
      Another question I have is, I want to automate two filters on the same graph. But the number box connected to the inlet only changes the 1st filter, and not the second. How do I split them up?
      Thanks
