Hello! I’m creating a surround sound patch using ICSTs Ambisonics externals and I was just wondering how I would go about inhibitting a joystick from making XY coordinates from going back to 0,0 without letting go of the joystick. I figured this wasn’t so much something with the external, as it is getting a [hi] device working how I want it to.
I would like to be able to have Max recognize the joysticks position while I’m holding down a trigger and then when I release the trigger, it holds the coordinates at that last set of XY points. And then when I move the joystick to a new position and activate the trigger, it’ll move the point to that position and follow the joystick as long as I hold the trigger. The trigger, when sent through a [route] (to separate it from the rest of the [hi] packed info), it sends either 0 (off) or 128 (on). I still want to be able to see the joystick coordinates even when the trigger isn’t pulled.
Thoughts? I’m still working on how logic works in Max. Thanks!
sounds like you can feed your x and y through a simple gate for this.
The basic logic parts are explained in the first tutorials. (please go through them if you haven’t – and if you have, do it again specifically to pick up these things, it’ll save you so much time in the end – I’m sorry to be all like RTFM, but it’s so good in this case)
Oh whoops I totally forgot I made this post >_< I actually just used a [gswitch2] and had it switch outlets via a [select] that bangs when it received the number value of the trigger press. But the gate makes sense too. Thanks!
