      It's a timing issue, your gate is closing before snapshot has done its job. See:
      or you could try lp.endoftheline~ from the Litter collection.

      where's the lp.endoftheline~ ? i'm a Litter Pro user, but i can't find
      this one...
      Thanks for the reply. Yes, it's a timing issue (i've made a test with
      capture~ meanwhile, and the 1. and the 0. are there).
      But the problem now is : when line~ is done, the gate~ is closed but
      still sends a 0. or a 1. !! So, i'd like to figure out :
      A- how to make it shut the fuck up (if another line~ do another job in
      the same destination, it's useless necause of this persistant signal),
      B - how to keep the last value on if i want...
      Easy to make it in max or will i have to do this in C ?
      best regards

      ps: forget about my Clipboard new discovered funtionnality... you can do
      this without ! :-%

      Generally speaking, you can't stop signal flow, because it will
      interrupt the dac~. You can use sah~ (sample and hold) to make it
      continue sending the last value that you sampled, however. A steady
      stream of 0's is silence, so you don't need to get rid of that
      necessarily.

      LOL.
      dude, there is a litter for everything, didn t you know that ?

      Could you send a sah~ example ? (the help file is a catastrophe : /"When
      the control makes a transition* from being at or below a the trigger
      value to being above the trigger value*, the input is sampled and its
      current value is output until another control transition occurs and the
      input is sampled again."/ Is it supposed to mean something ?!)
      best

      yes, see, it is supposed to mean :
      "When the control makes a transition* from being at or below a the
      trigger value to being above the trigger value*, the input is sampled
      and its current value is output until another control transition
      occurs and the input is sampled again."
      Sorry, couldn't resist...

      Think of phasor~ as a clock driving sah~. (though you could use ANY
      signal)
      Every time the signal on the right inlet goes from below to above the
      threshold value (i.e. for sah~ 0.01 that would be 0.01) it takes a
      snapshot of the left inlet and holds that until the next time it's
      triggered. (it's actually the first value in the current signal
      vector, NOT the current value, IIRC)
      If you use a phasor~ on the right inlet, you get a very rhythmically
      regular snap-shotting of the left inlet. If you use rand~ 5 (for
      instance), you get something less regular...
      Give this a try:
      rand~ 0.2
      |
      *~ 200
      |
      +~ 400
      |
      | rand~ 5. (try phasor~ 5 here as well)
      | |
      sah~ 0.01
      |
      cycle~
      |
      dac~
      Does this help?

      And you can tell easily if its a fake or not, litter names have to sound
      like litter, something like lp.pizzie, otherwise they are not
      original... lp.fuzzy f.e. would be already too much realworld, though it
      would fit into his collection...

      mmm... well. Can't see why it was supposed to be that fun... I *knew*
      it was not a good idea to try to make funny stupid joke before first
      coffee ;-)
      Anyway, thanks Peter. The help patch was more clear after your
      explanations. At least, after coffee...

      Waouhhhhhh ! Great idea Stefan ! I never thought about this : f.e = for
      example ! What a super name for a band ! I'll dedicace this one for you...
      cheers
