list as waveform


    Feb 08 2006 | 3:58 pm
    i've made a semi-random list generator (easy part) and i want to use it as a waveform. (i'm using a multislider as a viewingscreen)
    my problem is how to get it (that list) in the buffer~ object. i am currently trying coll 2 peek~ but it's not working out.. anyway, it is too much work to use a coll when using 512 floats. before that i tried a table .. got stuck there too.
    so can anyone steer me in the right direction?
    /attachment not working why?
    ps: using max 4.05 on a G3

      hi don't use a list in the first place (limited to 256 elements) just poke your data into buffer value by value. v

      Now that I've found the attachment :)
      I would skip the big list -> peek stage and write directly to peek; you have the index numbers courtesy of your uzi, so you can feed the uzi index and the random number into [pack. 0 0] which makes a two member list that can be fed straight into peek's left inlet via a [deferlow] (otherwise nothing seems to happen on my box :).
      You'll probably want to make sure you size the buffer correctly before populating it.

      Now that I've seen it...
      You may find the Brownian noise generator from Litter Power, lp.pfff~, a good deal more efficient. Record it into a buffer~ if you want to loop it or something.
      pfff~ is in the free Litter Starter Pack (URI down below). There is a more flexible lp.pvvv~ object in Litter Pro that allows you to adjust the "color" of the noise continuously. You can get similar effects with lp.lll~. And more...
      Here's an example doing what you wanted with lp.pfff~.

      thanks for the replies.. gonna try some, but i don't have the object "deferlow" see if i can find it somewhere..
      (ps i'm working on a os9 system)
      (about the attachment.. i tried to include a file but nothing appeared in the thread.. so i put a txt in a reply.. not a big deal..)

      it workes..!! thanks
      i'm sort of new, using buffer / sampling objects. but i'm learning.
