Fiddle~ issue

    Apr 29 2010 | 3:39 pm
    I have fiddle~ setup with my electric guitar all fine, however it recognises the A string and above, but wont detect what pitch G# and below are.
    Are there any settings i can tweak to make it detect the low E string?

      I hesitated to reply because I've not used fiddle~ in ages, and don't know a whole lot about it. I had the same experience with guitar of not being able to detect below about G#.
      Have you tried the sigmund~ object? If I'm not mistaken it's a newer "version" of fiddle~ from Miller Puckette. It may have improved low frequency pitch-tracking. There is also the pitch~ external, similar to both but I have no idea whether it will respond differently to low frequencies.
      One thing to try could be pitch-shifting your guitar signal up by an octave (gizmo~) before the input to fiddle~. It might make the tracking go a little mental, I'm not sure. But if that worked well enough, you could just use the pitched-up signal to detect the notes you're playing and then process your dry guitar signal normally.

      You are an absolute legend, that works perfectly (gizmo~).

      Cool cool. I'll remember that if I ever revisit my old cheezy-guitar-synth patch........stacked sawtooth bends through a loud guitar amp are hilarious :P

      You don't know how to ignore a number by any chance do you?
      Say i have the numbers 0 12 15 17 coming into a number box randomly.
      How do i ignore all the 0's, and have it display the last displayed number (that isn't 0).

      You could use a [clip 12 17 ] object before the number box.

      Actually that doesn't work properly - it will always display 12 instead of 0. This works though:

      split ?
      then you can have a range instead of just one number...
