deltaclip~

Limit changes in signal amplitude

Description

deltaclip~ limits the change between samples in an incoming signal. It is similar to the clip~ object, but it limits amplitude changes with respect to slope rather than amplitude.

Examples

Limit a signal's rate of change

Arguments

minimum-slope-value [float]

Optional

Initial minimum slope value for the rate of change of the output signal. If no argument is supplied, the minimum limit is initially set to 0 . If a signal is connected to the middle inlet, the corresponding argument is ignored.

minimum and maximum-slope-values [float]

Optional

Initial maximum slope value for the rate of change of the output signal. If no argument is supplied, the maximum limit is initially set to 0 . If a signal is connected to the right inlet, the corresponding argument is ignored.

Attributes

Common Box Attributes

annotation [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.

background [int] (default: 0)

Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer. background 1 adds the object to the background layer, background 0 removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.

color [4 floats]

Sets the color for the object box outline.

fontface [int]

Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:

plain
bold
italic
bold italic

Possible values:

0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'

fontname [symbol]

Sets the object's font.

fontsize [float]

Sets the object's font size (in points).

Possible values:

'8'
'9'
'10'
'11'
'12'
'13'
'14'
'16'
'18'
'20'
'24'
'30'
'36'
'48'
'64'
'72'

hidden [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.

hint [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.

ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.

patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)

Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.

position [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.

presentation [int] (default: 0)

Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.

presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.

rect [4 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).

size [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.

textcolor [float]

Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.

textjustification [int]

Text Justification

Possible values:

0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'

varname [symbol]

Sets the patcher's scripting name, which can be used to address the object by name in pattr, scripting messages to thispatcher, and the js object.

Messages

int

Arguments

minimum and maximum-slope-value [int]
In middle inlet: Minimum slope for the rate of change of the output signal. The minimum slope is typically negative.

In right inlet: Maximum slope for the rate of change of the output signal. The maximum slope is typically positive.

float

Arguments

minimum and maximum-slope-value [float]
In middle inlet: Minimum slope for the rate of change of the output signal. The minimum slope is typically negative.

In right inlet: Maximum slope for the rate of change of the output signal. The maximum slope is typically positive.

  (inlet1)

Arguments

minimum-slope-value [float]
In middle inlet: Minimum slope for the rate of change of the output signal. The minimum slope is typically negative.

  (inlet2)

Arguments

maximum-slope-value [float]
In right inlet: Maximum slope for the rate of change of the output signal. The maximum slope is typically positive.

reset

Resets the minimum and maximum slope values to the default value of 0.

signal

In left inlet: Any signal.

Output

signal

The input signal is sent out, with its change limited by the minimum and maximum slope values.
