understanding LINE ~object
Hello , everyone.
I am very beginner.
Could somebody explain to me what is the function of line object please ?
I really want to understand and try it.
What line object can do ?
I read about user guide but I don't get anything.
Please teach me what should I understand before to get line object ?
1. what is the number of grey box in patch ? (screen shot )
2. how can I UNDERSTANDING function of the relation between line object and multiplication .(please explain with example)
3.how can I use it. where I need .
I would very much appreciate your help.
I think the simplest explanation is suggested by the actual name of the object itself – it outputs a line between any two points (or numbers/values). The grey box you refer to is (I think) the message box in the lower picture. What it tells line is "go to 0.5 in 5 milliseconds". In this case the line~ object is connected to a multiplier, which scales the samples output by the cycle~ 400 object (which are oscillating between -1 and 1.) So, before the message (or button as you say) is triggered, cycle is oscillating between -1 and 1. When the message is triggered the range of oscillation is reduced to between -0.5 and 0.5, over the time of 5ms.

All I am really doing is quoting from the helpfile for the line object. These are invaluable in understanding the different Max objects.
What a beautiful example you show me.
Now I have an idea the definition of line object in my mind.
Thanks a lot .
