Signal cosine function


cosx~ will take any given signal and output a signal which is the hyperbolic cosine function of each sample within the input signal, but unlike the cos~ object, whose output is based around 1 and intended for use as a lookup table with the phasor~ object, the cosx~ object is a true π based function.




signal Output from a cosine function.

Information for box attributes common to all objects


signal: The cosine of the input.


cosx~ can make your audio control signals less jumpy and more bumpy
