new user, question about storing numbers


    Jul 11 2006 | 2:57 am
    Hi new user here, having problems with storing numbers in max.
    Up till now i was using tables in order to store the result of some
    simple trigonometric expressions .
    I have been using zmap to convert and scale the float numbers into integers before storing them.
    However since i now think that i want to work with msp i am looking for a way to store these as floats, and afterwards decide how to scale them.
    Is there an object i could use to do so ?
    Sorry if this is obvious but i am still learing the program and perhaps i've missed something.
    Thanks
    Ph

      [coll] the most obvious
      [capture] can capture numbers and other stuff too
      [mtr] if recalling the numbers is not too timecritical
      (messageboxes) of ($1, $2, $3, $4) style also store
      values recieves as elements of a list ( (7 777 5 555) )
      [f] if you want to store them one by one
      or eventually : convert them to a signal using peek~,
      buffer~, and play~/groove~.

      Hi roman and thanks for your help.
      Actually i had just found coll, my only problem with it is however that i cannot check the max and min values on order to scale them .
      What i want to do is generate some sort of 'score' and then access it simultanuously in different timescales.
      I'll check your other suggestions, perhaps something might do the trick.
      cheers

      coll.
      You should look at the Max Object Thesaurus for other ideas.
