comparing values

    Apr 12 2011 | 2:43 pm
    Hi all, Is there an object that can collect a number of values and then compare them in order to distinguish the highest one? I want to record 2 seconds into a buffer with my guitar and then get the highest note that I played in those two seconds (I have a midi pickup on my guitar, just need the midi note number).
    thanks in advance, Alex

      'zl group' object will make them into a list, and then use the 'maximum' object.

      but I won't know the number of notes that will be played in advance (you see I will be improvising). 'zl group' needs to have the number of list items specified, so I'm not sure if it will really work... thanks though.

      i group things by making zl group really huge and then i send a bang when i collect all that i need. could trigger that bang with footpedalz or s'thing else.

      Maybe Lobjects from Peter Elsea like Lmax Lmin and L==

      @ mortimer59, don't think so cause they compare and produce lists, while I want a single number.

      @ Amil Mille, it does work, I just did a small mistake when I sent the previous answer. Thanks a lot.
