I am getting a very beautiful square wave signal from my audio interface (Presonus Firebox) in from adc~. I can connect it directly to scope~ and view the signal (calccount in scope~ at 50). So without doing anything to the signal, it is directly viewable in scope~... no biquad~, no cycle~, no change~ etc.
All I actually want and need is the actual frequency of the signal, displayed as a number value in a number box, etc. that will update rapidly and accurately as the frequency changes.
The number~ object perfectly displays frequency (as a number) when it receives the signal from the sig~ object... but I have a hard time figuring out why the number~ object displays values other than frequency when receiving signals from anything else... like an actual signal from adc~. I believe it tends to be displaying amplitudes, as it does in some of the tutorials.
I know there must be an easy simple solution... I have been through the MSP tutorials enough times... it seems to be a small annoying details not quite explained.
Any help much appreciated!
