levelmeter~ Output

    Can C74 fix the output of the levelmeter~ object to give the value as a float (as stated in the documentation) rather than an integer?

      no worries posting it here, but you can also submit tickets directly to C74 if you ever need, from the "Help" tab of this site, you can use the "Submit a ticket" link near top-right of that page: https://support.cycling74.com/hc/en-us/ (on the ticket, you could list under "Expected Results" the 'reference doc' for levelmeter~ lists its output as "float", etc.; if you're logged-in to the site while doing this, it'll autofill your email for reply-to in case they need more info.)

      That said, you could also use another object, like [average~] and some kind of snapshot~/number~ to get the float.

      So I have a physical sound level meter whose function I am trying to emulate in Max which is to constantly output the peak RMS amplitude over the last second. I have created a patch using [average~] as well as [levelmeter~] and now I am interested in comparing the values with my SLM, but it would help to have more accuracy with the [levelmeter~] output.
