slow down flow of numbers

Apr 06 2011 | 5:00 am

I’m controlling video with audio in Jitter via MaxforLive.

I’m attempting a very simple process of "compressing" the video with the audio signal. For example, I want the video to diminish in brightness when a peak threshold is crossed. I have a little patch that does this well enough, but the return back up to full brightness is too fast.

I would like to be able to slow down the "release" of my video "compressor."

All I think I need is an object or patcher that will slow down the flow of numbers out of numbox or math operator. Any ideas?

not exactly sure what you mean by slow down, but check speedlim to only let through numbers at a specified interval.
or you could collect the numbers in a list as they come in and then send them out "manually" as you need them. for that check out the zl objects.
if that doesn’t help, upload a patch that explains your problem a bit more.

Oops, sorry no, I think it’s speedlim that’s more appropriate. My bad.
