making waveform from a list


    Oct 24 2013 | 1:53 pm
    hello,
    I have a question which I can't figure out myself. I want to create my own waveform (as a wavetable synthesis technique) but all the data being received from a list. I know I can use waveform~ and its mode draw thing however I don't want to use my mouse but insert different values (x,y). Something like variables going into the waveform~ or peek~?
    any ideas?
    thanks,
    t

      Check out /Max6.1/examples/utilities/buffer-writer.maxpat. This example comes with Max.

      I never thought that was such a self-explanatory patch, since it deals with the formulas and such.
      Here's one that does a simple multislider, like waveform~, but allows for what OP wants.
      I quite like this edit, actually.

      thanks wetterberg that really helps a lot. It's exactly what I wanted, however it's weird that this can't be done with waveform~, isn't it? Anyway thanks again. MZED I am still on max 5. Once I am able to find a max 6 version, I'll check the example.

      If you had looked, you'd see that the same example comes with Max 5.

      It *can* be done with waveform, you just can't control it from outside as much. It's more of a mouse-only thing.
