mstosamps~

Convert milliseconds to samples

Description

Use the mstosamps~ object to convert an incoming signal carrying a millisecond value and output a signal which converts those millisecond values to a number of samples (at the current sampling rate).

Examples

Time expressed in milliseconds comes out expressed in samples

Arguments

None.

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

millisecond-value [int]
Millisecond values received in the inlet are converted to a number of samples at the current sampling rate and sent out the object's right outlet. The output might contain a fractional number of samples. For example, at 44.1 kHz sampling rate, 3.2 milliseconds is 141.12 samples.

float

Arguments

millisecond-value [float]
Millisecond values received in the inlet are converted to a number of samples at the current sampling rate and sent out the object's right outlet. The output might contain a fractional number of samples. For example, at 44.1 kHz sampling rate, 3.2 milliseconds is 141.12 samples.

signal

Incoming millisecond values in the signal are converted to a number of samples at the current sampling rate and output as a signal out the mstosamps~ object's left outlet. The output may contain a fractional number of samples.

Output

float

Out right outlet: The number of samples corresponding to the millisecond value received as a float or int in the inlet.

signal

Out left outlet: The number of samples corresponding to the millisecond values in the input signal.
