is there a way to test for a bang?
and kind of related – is there a way to test for non-numeric data?
all the operators seem to work for numeric only.
do you mean [sel bang] or [route bang] ?
I suppose it’s route bang – basically I want to switch on a record~ object with non-zero but the thing that’s coming down the patch cord is a bang.
So I will test for bang and if it’s a bang then change to a 1 to enable the record~.
In this case you could simply send the bang to a  message box or a [t 1] object.
you can also bang a toggle to switch it on and off
Broc again – I can’t understand what the [t 1] object means???
But I was using a toggle but the toggle retains it’s state so only every 2nd click of the start button starts the record~ object.
What I then did was to bang the toggle again after recording has finished to reset it but this seems more complex than it should be.
[t 1] is short for the [trigger] object, you can write it [trigger 1] or just [t 1]. It’s super useful – check out the help file. [t 1] will output a 1 with any input.
Can’t do that when I don’t have access to live or max.
I am at work – sorry – didn’t mean to sound rude!
I know – I tried looking up [t 1] and [t]
in the online docs – but that cannot be found of course.
If I had been at home I would have typed it into a patch and then it would have been clearer – anyway – I am pretty new to max as you can see.
Hopefully won’t be bothering you all too much after all your kind help.
Works great. Thanks all.
