Computing numbers: Inc/Decrement/Wave Wrap Counter [newbie]


    Dec 23 2013 | 6:57 pm
    Hi,
    (sorry for my question i did'nt find in the forum)
    Using counter i can change:
    - min sending message "setmin $1" in first box input
    - max using last box input called "set count max"
    I tried using "carry" that bang when count hit max to increment (+1 ) the "set count max" but it doesn't start again and increments to infinite.
    Any solution to get:
    1 2 3/ 2 3 4/ 3 4 5/ 5 6 7 for example?
    Here's the patch that failed...
    Thanks a lot for any feedback :-)

      Thanks a lot Chris,
      I'd love to think that way,
      hope it ll come with time.
      it's kind of a backward way of using it to me ;-)

      Hi
      I'm trying to change the count to down and up&down directions,
      and also to restart it after a number but with "coherent" transition,
      as for number around a circle. (with a view of spacialization )
      for ex limit to 7:
      123/234/345/456/567/671/712/123/...
      Sorry for my Newbeing !
      ( I try as much as I can... )

      Well,
      still stuck I'm wondering why "carry count" doesn't continue while in down mode...

      Hi there,
      so I tried with a sel but no success,
      maybe the disposition from right to left that doesn't make the calculation in the right order?
      Any hint?
      Thanks a lot

      Weird, I can't get the carry count to work in downward mode either.
      Here's a way to do it for each direction, avoiding zeros, using pong to wrap the values like you described:
      Pong is weird in the downward direction too - it seems to take one "wrap" for it to output the correct range, which is why I stuck those range messages in there to be banged after the first wrap.

      Thanks Charlie but i don't see where the problem comes from ,
      I 'm usually using isadora software that intergrates a wrap counter,
      it's amazing how this is hard in max... just to make several series of number,
      but i'm sure there should be a simpliest way of doing: ( in 4 ie )
      - 1 2 3 2 3 4 3 4 1 4 1 2 1 2 3 ...
      _ 1 4 3 4 3 2 3 2 1 2 1 4 1 4 3 ...
      _ 1 2 3 4 3 2 1 2 3 4 1 4 3 2 3 4 1 2 1 4 3 ...
      and being able to change min/ max and interval of counting,
      I think I'm going to give up ;-ù

      Please?

      Here's a patch that produces the up and down with a variable maximum

      thanks a lot Rick,
      i'll dig in it seems a clever solution !

      Looks like I was a bit too clever, somethings not quite right. Here's another take on the patch.
