Problem with Line Object / Smoothing Automation Sent to Live.Dial

Aug 13 2013 | 4:00 pm

I have searched for 2 hours now before posting here but I cannot find this, apologies if I’ve missed the thread.

So, I have random numbers being generated in the simple patch below. I want the data to be able to come in all jittery and random – to keep this part jagged – but to find a way to smooth the live.dial transitions. The line object is simply eluding me and I have no error messages to shine the light on where I’m going wrong in this patch.

I’m wondering if anyone can tell me the obvious mistake below or a way around it. I just want to get the changing data to be read as $1, unless that’s an idiotic approach. Right now I’m using the mean object which is completely fine to solve my issues…but it’s irking me why I am too idiotic to get the line object to work here.

Thanks dearly for your time.

You might want to check out the "LFO" device inside the max for live essentials pack that comes with live 9. This has a jitter and smoothing effect and I believe they are quite new implementations (possibly better)

hey thanks so much, i didn’t even think of that but use that LFO device all the time.

there were a couple of minor errors in your patch, which I have corrected and annotated, with a suggested alternative solution:

Stephane – that was exactly my problem. Thank you endlessly!

Brendan – two perfect ways to now do this. Thank you so, so much, I will save these for future experiences with tunnel vision.

a small improvement so you can change the ramp time.
