## chance in max

Sep 03 2006 | 7:44 pm
hi all,
Im a bit rusty on using max so any help would be greatly appreciated!
Heres the setup: i want to have 2 bangs with some code in between them...with this code i want to be able to specify the chance of a bang getting through...so if i input 1.0 and repeatedly hit the first bang the second should light up every time.if i input 0.0 then the second bang should never light up...then if i input 0.5 the second bang should light up on average every other time that the first bang is hit.And so on.... 0.25 - 1 in 4 0.9 - 9 in 10 0.66r - 2 in 3 etc etc.
Im sure theres an easy way to do it using 'random' but im feeling dim so please help...
thanks very much,
joe

Max Tutorial 25. Scroll to the right.
I can't believe that I'm answering a question about randomness without plugging Litter Power, but there you have it.-
