Turning something on for a a timed duration.

    Apr 20 2006 | 1:08 pm
    I am trying to send a signal out to a solenoid using a teleo module. What I want to do is turn it on (send a '1') and then have it automatically turn off (send 'O') after a certain amount of time. Is there an object that does this?
    Thanks!, tr

      Ummmmmm, I have. Remembering and learning to use everything from a 400 page tutorial takes a little time. Could someone give me at least a hint?

      Hey bine, Take it easy. Why even waste your time replying if we are all so far beneath you. I HAVE been working through the documentation. I HAVE written simple programs that work. I DO feel like a jackass for not seeing the solution to this. The forum is a place to ask questions, not assert some wierd tribal authority. be people

      you could at least be honest dude. timing tricks are the basic of max and the tutorials cover a lot of them. anyways.. this is becoming a flame war, so i'll shut up..

      makenote 1 1000
      Attach your toggle, etc. to the right outlet of makenote, and send any int into makenote's left inlet. (it'll make a note of velocity 1 for n ms, then send a velocity of 0)
