What I'm trying to accomplish:
I'm trying to bring in the position of the knob on my MotorMix but it
only sends a direction (see my solution).
My Solution (not completely working):
Using counter, every time a 1/0 (knob direction) comes in through
MIDI, it triggers a bang which is counted. When the maximum count is
reached (knob max.), counter sends out a bang which closes the gate.
This works but when the knob reaches the minimum count, it resets to
the max value. I can send a patch to demonstrate this solution later
as I'm not at my Max/MSP computer.
Seems like it would be a simple solution, but is there a way to create
a minimum and maximum for counter that does not reset? I can use a
gate but then I need to be able to re-open the gate when the opposite
knob direction comes back in via MIDI.
Another thing is my solution does not account for accelerated knob
twisting to speed up the values inc/decrementing. I could be doing
this all wrong, so I would love to hear of a better solution
