keep maximum~

    Hi all,
    I got two question that might be easy for some of you, but it's been giving me a headache, and I couldn't find a thread on it in the forum.
    How can I have a patch, that keeps the maximum of an audio signal stream (not like maximum~ comparing 2 values). I kind of managed to do that - but then I had trouble being able to reset the maximum value to 0 again.
    Thank you!!!!

      Something like this, perhaps?

      Hi Christopher,
      yes, basically like this, but in the audio domain, if possible.
      Thanks a lot though!

      Do you really require updating on every single sample? If so, my first question would be "Why?" But if you do, that would mean that every output sample y would depend on the previous output sample y-1, which implies that you'd either need a signal vector size of 1 (inefficient) or that the process would have to take place within a single msp~ object (written in C or Java). However, if you don't really require an update every sample, set the time interval of peakamp~ to the update time you do need, then send the output to a sig~ object (or smooth it with a line~ object, or curve~, or rampsmooth~) to get it back into the MSP audio signal world.
