If it is in an [vst~] there is an output for changed parameters. Open the plugin, do manually what you want and look what leaves the particular output. This shows you what you have to send into the leftmost input for the desired action.
Hi Peter, thanks for your comment.
not sure i got that, or maybe i was not clear.
I made an audio effect in max which contain a filter + an envelope that controls the cutoff.
so i added this device on a channel. - plugin is going to the input of the filter and plugout come from the output of the filter.
to make the envelope control the cutoff I need to send a trigger to the envelope....
did you suggest to add a vst~ to the patch ?
Hi ppl, Just came back after a while.
i was reverse engineering so i have a lot of knowledge holes.
I built an audio effect (just simple filter with envelope). what I did not find out is how to make the envelope start to work the moment the signal hit the filter.
Example for clarity: I synthsis an hand clap with ableton's opreator. but I wanted to shape it more with an ex filter. So I added after the synth the max filter that I made. So the synth sound goes trough an ex filter. all works fine just I dont find how to trigger the envelope filter the moment the clap goes in the filter.
When I added the slide~ i do not have a distorted random click anymore but still have the filter not tight 100%.
So in the beginning of the sound the filter is open for few ms and only then react to the envelope which set on a long attack. indeed seems to be latency, but not a real solution? ( appear also when the buffer is really low).
Also, did not sure I get from the "help" what the slide does. in case you have it in a short (or long) will be awesome.
Another issue that I recognize is that the envelope creates a really high tone (around 22K) for all the duration that the envelope set for.
I've switched out a few objects to make the filter modulation at signal rate. It's always better to use signals for modulations like these just cuz they're more accurate. [slide~] basically just smooths out sharp changes in a signal. Let me know if this works.
Sometimes when I loop the sound and change/play with the parameters the filter stoped to react and I can't hear any sound trough the filter anymore. On the channel meter in ableton I see feedback but can not hear non. I guess it a really loud click that made it?
It seems like the only way to fix it is to restart ableton.
