Gain Device with Practical Automation Range for Max for Live?

    Feb 20 2014 | 12:35 am
    I have a very simple Max for Live patch which is essentially just a volume fader. I use it as a "send" for devices in an Ableton Audio Effects Racks. The only problem is the automation range is not super useful. I want to be able to automate from -inf to + 0 (or +6) but have the automation range scale in a useful way so there's plenty of granularity near the top (say -12 and up). Any suggestions? Thanks!

      you should take a look at the help patch for the [scale] object. Its last inlet lets you specify an exponent, which will let you have more room to manoeuvre at the top.

      Oh, that's great, thank you Griz. I took a peek, and [scale] should definitely help me do what I want. Cheers!
