slider and mouse


    Sep 15 2006 | 2:12 pm
    I realized i've never used mouse for live peformance but external controllers only. Unfortunately, i'll have to do without for the next days, so i wonder : is there a slider, or a trick, to avoid value gaps ? Using multislider or gain~, if you click at the opposite of the current state, or anywhere, it'll update here, causing huge drops... Using a ramp won't help : Is there a way to only 'catch' the head of a slider ?
    best

      Thanks, Kasp. I've just tried what you said, but if you click [slider] anywhere *then drag*, it'll follow. You're not forced to drag, of course, so it's a little bit safer than the other ways... I'm trying to manage something with picture based slider (unselecting option 'Knob Jumps To Click Location') but it's not as handy as multisliders.
      cheers

      of course i know - and for sure you can build something with LCD etc etc - but the object is here and handy - beside, well the purpose of a slider is somewhat into the possibility to drag it.... somehow...;-)
