Recording messages from dials and sliders


    Aug 18 2007 | 11:11 pm
    Hi, I know I came across this in the tutorials but can't for the life of me find it. I simply want to campture a set of values from an ordinary slider or dial so that they can be regurgitated later on demand (e.g. in response to a bang)
    Cheers

      Connect the output of the slider to the right inlet of [float] or [int]. When you want the value back, bang the left inlet. If you're sending the value back to the slider it came from, you'll need to use grab to get the value in the first place.
      I think (it's late!)

      sorry, I meant that I want to record a large sequence of values (they should be outputted as they were recorded as with the timing information retained). I'm guessing this is kind of like recording midi note events (how this is done has escaped me)

      There's a "gesture recorder" on my site that does just that: http://www.xfade.com/max/gesture/
      Note that it's less of a "ready to go" thing, and more of a "modify it until it works the way you want it" thing. That said, I think it would be a good starting point.

      I use seq~ for this.

      Hi. Have a look at the mtr object. Cheers.

      hi, here is a simple exemple with [mtr]:

      mtr, seq~, etc. Also look into pattr; saves only states, not real-time changes, but provides interpolation of many kinds on playback.
      You could also store the values one at a time into a table (at specified intervals), thus seeing the changes over time. Then you can access the data in a number of ways whenever you want, including non-linearly.

      And not to forget primitive but simple: [zl queue]...
      get all back bang after bang, if you need no timing information...
