Filtering out a specifix index in Coll (in a poly patch)

    Oct 19 2011 | 1:50 am
    I have a Coll object that is constantly being updated with random number lists from 64 sources
    So I have 64 indexes
    I use the counter object to constantly circulate through the 64 indexed lists, so I get a constant feed of the updated lists.
    the feed I am compairing (using zl compare) to another list
    Now the problem is that I want to filter out the one specific index i.e the list that I am compairing later, so that I don´t get a false positive ( btw, the reason I can´t just not send the specific list is because this is all in a poly object/patch)
    Select - doesnt work, because it only gives out single intigers or floats I believe
    zl filter - doesnt work because contrary to it´s name it seems to be queary-ing the one list I want to do away with and not filtering it out (the second outlet then doesnt seem to give out the other lists
    Best regards.

      Not sure if I understand your question correctly, but to skip a specific value of a counter you could do this.
      [if $i1 != $i2 then $i1]
      where $i1 is the counter and $i2 the skipped value.

      Thanks broc
      Yeah my mind was to hung up on doing this within our with the coll object
      I came up with a similar solution to yours, of just using select to filter out the prefered index nr from the counter
      All the best.
