Stuck on the simplest thing!

    All I want to do is use [live.dial] as a gain control for a signal. I want it in decibals– without using a series of [atodb]– in the range of -12 to +12. Infuriatingly, I can't seem to get this to happen. Is there no built in MSP object to do this ? The jasch [db*~] isn't doing what I'd expect.
    Thanks, Brian

      Like this?

      If you prefer the appearance of live.dial instead of live.gain~, you could always use live.dial as a controller for a hidden live.gain~...

      Like this– just dB. One assumes that there is a dB output on [live.dial] that can actually be used somehow...

      I must not be understanding what Jasch's [*db~] is supposed to be doing. I assumed it meant simply scale by a decibel value, but I'm not getting what I'd expect. Any hints?

      [*db~] is only an attenuator? Is there a reason why? I don't understand the difference between sending it a float ("multiplication face") or sending it an int < 0.

      float and int in right inlet are treated differently as shown in the help file:
