setting parameters with zigzag~


    Aug 08 2006 | 1:55 am
    I've been trying to use zigzag~ as a kind of envelope generator (and yes, I have good reasons for not using adsr~). However, if I send it a set of values, it triggers every time I change them. My preference would be to change them when I'm in the mood, but trigger the zigzag at my leisure. Out of habit, I tried prepending "set" to the list, only to discover that zigzag doesn't understand set. this seems rather unmaxlike of it. So, I have two questions:
    1. Is there any particular reason it doesn't understand set, and could I encourage one of the C74 geniuses to add a line of code for the next release?
    2. Given the absence of it, is there any other way I could get a list in without triggering output?
    thanks,
    M

      Not likely to happen soon if ever.

      Serialize the list as a set of pairs and use setindex value>

      That'll work. Thanks.
