Why is [function] + [line] not working?

    Hi - this is strange. This is a patch I just whipped up to test out tempo phasing using [function] to determine the direction of the phasing. it's a simple and straight forward patch - what's getting me is that function's connection to line doesn't seem to be acting according to how it should. When I shift the points around, it might change line's value, but line doesn't go through all the points each time a bang is sent to function. What am I missing here?

      The [line] object can only take a list of 2 items. It's [line~] that can accept longer lists of destination/time pairs. I think that might be your issue here.

      the line object is not multisegment. You might want to use either line~ + snapshot~ or some abstraction which turn line into a multisegement bpf like my ej.line.

      Or, you can do it without externals. Just drive your [function] with a [line] instead of vice-versa:

      You can also run line into the first input of function to get similar results-
      I have the domain of the function set to 1. to keep it simple.
