Host-synchronized sawtooth wave


Note: plug-in building for hosts other than Ableton Live is no longer supported. For more information to help you make the transition to creating plug-ins in Max for Live, see Max for Live for Pluggo Developers.

plugphasor~ outputs an audio-rate sawtooth wave that is sample-synchronized to the beat of the host sequencer. The waveform can be fed to other audio objects to lock audio processes to the audio of the host.



Information for box attributes common to all objects


signal: The output of plugphasor~ is analogous to phasor~: it ramps from 0 to 1.0 over the period of a beat. If the current host environment does not support synchronization or the host's transport is stopped, the output of plugphasor~ is a zero signal.
