waveform~ Ableton style zooming


    Mar 01 2010 | 6:24 pm
    Hi
    I've just started experimenting with MSP a bit, and was wondering if there's any way to change waveform~'s move mode so that it zooms in when you move down and out when you move up (e.g. invert the y-axis on the mouse) so that it matches Ableton's clip view method for zooming.
    If not, would I be able to request this as a feature?
    Many thanks

      not that i know of. i doubt it'll ever be a feature of waveform~ either. you'll have to roll your own, i'd start by looking at [mousestate], particularly "button down" and "mouse delta vertical" outputs. cheers,,

      waveform~ lets you zoom, look at the vzoom message and set the display start and end values. Needs some patching and calculation most likely. Depends on what you want...

      Ok thanks for the hints! I'll have a look into it.

      waveform~ gained a new attribute in 5.1.4. Open its inspector and have a look to the Zoom Orientation
