!-~

Signal subtraction (inlets reversed)

Description

The !-~ object functions just like the -~ object, but the inlet order is reversed.

Examples

-~ with the inlets reversed

Arguments

initial-subtraction-value [number]

Optional

Sets an initial amount to subtract from the signal coming into the right inlet. If a signal is only connected to the left inlet, that value is subtracted from the given argument. If a signal is connected to both the left and right inlets, the argument is overridden by the signal coming into the right inlet. If no argument is present, the initial value is 0 by default.

Messages

int

Arguments

input [int]
In left inlet: An amount to subtract from 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: Subtracts the signal coming into the left inlet from this value. If a signal is also connected to the right inlet, a float or int is ignored.

float

Arguments

input [float]
In left inlet: An amount to subtract from 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: Subtracts the signal coming into the left inlet from this value. If a signal is also connected to the right inlet, a float or int is ignored.

signal

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

In right inlet: The signal coming into the left inlet or a constant value received in the left inlet is subtracted from this signal.
