detect when number is moving


    Apr 17 2006 | 12:45 am
    trying to create a patch that will detect when a number is moving, which in turn will detect when it is not moveing (i.e, when it has remained still for a number of millisecond)
    this is what i have, but it doesnt work

      to clarify, this is simply to detect when a controller is NOT in use

      [change] is your friend , it detects changing numbers as its name might suggest it ... this might help :

      Is this what you want? It sends out 1s as long as the values it gets in change faster than the argument in the delay object.

      Hint: too many objects, you need one object to detect the moving and one to detect if its not moving...

      Wrong assumption, its really easy IF you go though the tutorials, which is obvious you didn't.
      Doesn't it drive the red colour of shame into you face, knowing that your teacher will read this? (True I am just guessing that the deadline has to do with a task for a course, but if there would be a serious deadline, this kind of question is very unlikely, and its very likely your teacher does read the list, even if she doesn't show up with her real name...)
      Sorry, couldn't resist.

      no, i am not ashamed to ask simple questions, those who dont ask questions will not learn
      i used that as my signature because people on this site made me feel i should appologise, but the truth is I think that message forums like this have a purpose, and that is one of shared knowledge. and a medium like max/msp thrives when its experts dont mind helping its newbies.
      no i havent read the tutorials in their entirety, but i do use them for reference. i dont have time to read them all, i must learn on the job, which is why i use this forum. and when i consider myself learned, i will share my knowledge with others freely and gladly.
      and if my lecturer is reading this, i hope he see's it as a resourcful action, and not one that undermines my intelligence.
      so thank you for your advice, my system is now working fine

      If you first try to answer your questions yourself, you learn muuuuch more. (Just something I learnd and love to share with you)

      I never mind helping newbies, but I definitely prefer to help after they tried themself (eventually hard).

      Thats one important point. Nobody has time, especially those you ask for help. You'll get more help if you respect other peoples time. And it is not true, that the forum is faster for learning. Going through the tutorials will take you very little time and teach you more, they'll answer your questions of tomorrow.
      Your kind of questions would be appropriate for a chat channel, maybe thats something to consider for Wallace...
      And don't forget, you're welcome... (but try a little bit harder ;-)

      are you implying i dont help myself? do you think i am relying on this forum for answers, and i am sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for a responce?
      You are mistaken
