sampstoms~ Reference

Convert time from samples to milliseconds

sampstoms~

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

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.
