sampstoms~

Convert time from samples to milliseconds

Description

Use the sampstoms~ object to convert an incoming signal carrying a time value in samples and output a signal which converts that number of samples to a number of milliseconds (at the current sampling rate).

Examples

Some objects refer to time in samples, some in milliseconds

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

sample-value [int]
A value representing a number of samples received in the inlet is converted to milliseconds at the current sampling rate and sent out the object's right outlet. The input may contain a fractional number of samples. For example, at 44.1 kHz sampling rate, 322.45 samples is 7.31 milliseconds. (A float or int input triggers output even when audio is off.)

float

Arguments

sample-value [float]
A value representing a number of samples received in the inlet is converted to milliseconds at the current sampling rate and sent out the object's right outlet. The input may contain a fractional number of samples. For example, at 44.1 kHz sampling rate, 322.45 samples is 7.31 milliseconds. (A float or int input triggers output even when audio is off.)

signal

Values in the signal represent a number of samples, and are converted to milliseconds at the current sampling rate to output as a signal out the left outlet. The input may contain a fractional number of samples.

Output

float

Out right outlet: A number of milliseconds corresponding to a number of samples received in the inlet.

signal

Out left outlet: A signal consisting of the number of milliseconds corresponding to values representing a number of samples in the input signal .
