/~

Divide one signal by another

Description

Use the /~ object is to multiply a signal coming into the left inlet by the reciprocal of either the initial argument or an int or float received in the right inlet.

Examples

It is more computationally efficient to use an equivalent multiplication when possible

Arguments

initial-divisor [number]

Optional

Sets an initial value by which to divide the signal coming into the left inlet. If a signal is connected to the right inlet, the argument is ignored. If no argument is present, and no signal is connected to the right inlet, the initial value is 1 by default.

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

dividend/divisor [int]
In left inlet: The number is divided by the signal coming into the right inlet. If a signal is also connected to the left inlet, a float or int is ignored.

In right inlet: A number by which to divide the signal coming into the left inlet. If a signal is also connected to the right inlet, a float or int is ignored.

float

Arguments

dividend/divisor [float]
In left inlet: The number is divided by the signal coming into the right inlet. If a signal is also connected to the left inlet, a float or int is ignored.

In right inlet: A number by which to divide the signal coming into the left inlet. If a signal is also connected to the right inlet, a float or int is ignored.

signal

In left inlet: The signal is divided by a signal coming into the right inlet, or a constant value received in the right inlet.

In right inlet: The signal is used as the divisor, to be divided into the signal coming into the left inlet, or the constant value received in the left inlet.

Output

signal

The ratio of the two inputs, i.e., the left input divided by the right input.
