Queue-based message limiter
Slows down throughput of messages. Limiting is based on a minimum amount of time between passed message.
The qlim object is similar to a combination of the speedlim and the Jitter jit.qball object. In Jitter, most execution take places in the low priority queue to prevent drawing to the screen at interrupt. The speedlim object unfortunately places messages back in the scheduler for execution, and thus may result in a crash when used to temporally downsample streams of Jitter matrices if Overdrive is turned on. The qlim object is an interrupt safe replacement for this and other tasks.
The minimum amount of time between successive outputs. Time can be specified in any of the time formats used in Max. If there is no argument, the minimum time is 0 milliseconds.
Turn this on to send output in the low-priority queue.
quantize [10 atoms]
Send output only on the specified time-boundary if appropriate. This is achieved by making internal adjustments to the times used for sending output. The quantization can be specified in the following time formats: bars.beats.units, ticks or note values.
threshold [10 atoms]
Sets the time threshold. The threshold can be specified in the following time formats: bars.beats.units, ticks or note values.
Common Box Attributes
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.adds the object to the background layer, 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.
Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:
0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'
Sets the object's font.
Sets the object's font size (in points).
hidden [int] (default: 0)
Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.
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]
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]
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]
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.
Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.
0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'
In right inlet: The number is stored as the minimum amount of time, in milliseconds, between successive outputs.
