function ramps


    Jan 16 2006 | 4:47 pm
    Hey chaps,
    im trying to create number ramps using the function object so i can draw pitch envelopes. i've been using line and function objects but can't figure out how to set the duration of the envelope.
    any ideas?
    cheers, dave

      Maybe the "domain" or "setdomain" sent to the [function] object?

      cheer patrick,
      i've tried the set domain object however still having problems with hooking it up to a pitch input. i think i might go down the dial route and set 3 dials into a line (initial pitch, final pitch, and time duration) however after trying this before im stuggling to get this info into the line object to produce a ramp. any ideas? maybe pack the three into the line?
      cheers, dave

      I was working recently on something similar (to make big glissandos) and ended up using a function. The function domain is the total duration, driven by a metro hooked up to a counter object. Here's a quick and dirty patch below - I hope it helps.
