embed [int] (default: 1)
Toggles the ability to embed the table and save its data as part of the main patch. The default behavior is 1 (save the data).
Specifies the name of a table. You can also specify the name of a table object using an argument. Max looks for a table of the s ame name which has been saved as a separate file. If two or more table objects share the same names, they also share the same values.
notename [int] (default: 0)
Toggles Y axis display using MIDI note names.
parameter_mappable [int] (default: 1)
When parameter_mappable is enabled, the object will be available for mapping to keyboard or MIDI input using the Mappings feature. (default = 1).
Specifies the range of values which can be displayed on the y axis of the editing window. A newly created table has a range of 128, from 0 to 127.
signed [int] (default: 0)
Toggles the ability to store and display signed integer values. A newly created table with signed values has a range of 256, from -128 to 127.
Specifies the number of values stored in the table. The default is 128 values, indexed with numbers from 0 to 127.
Same as a
message with a random number between 0 and 32,768 as an argument. See the message for more details.
Retrieves the number by address from the table
, and sends if out the left outlet.
Stores the value at the next index number received at the left inlet.
The second number is stored in at the address (index) specified by the first number.
Causes table to ignore a number received in the right inlet, so that the next number received in the left inlet will output a number, rather than storing a number at that address.
Set all values to 0
Fill the table with a number
The values stored in table can be entered and edited graphically with the mouse. When a table
object is first created in a patcher window, the table
object’s graphic editing window is opened, and values can be entered by drawing with the mouse. The editing window provides a palette of graphic editing tools. When the patcher window is locked, the graphic editing window can be opened by double-clicking with the mouse on the table
Sends all the numbers stored in the table out the left outlet in immediate succession, beginning with address 0.
Changes the table
object’s saving options as found in the Inspector. The first argument affects the Save with Patcher option, and the second argument affects the Don’t Save option. If the argument is zero the option is unchecked, otherwise it is checked.
Given a number between zero and one, multiplies the number by the sum of all the numbers in the table. Then, table sends out the address at which the sum of the all values up to that address is greater than or equal to the result.
Gets the value of one or more specific bits of a number stored in the table, and sends that value out the left outlet. The first argument is the address to query; the second argument is the starting bit location in the number stored at that address (the bit locations are numbered 0 to 31, from the least significant bit to the most significant bit); and the third argument specifies how many bits to the right of the starting bit location should be sent out. The specified bits are sent out the outlet as a single decimal integer.
Sets a pointer to the address specified by the number. The pointer is set at the beginning of the table initially.
Finds the first value which is greater than or equal to that number, and sends the address of that value out the left outlet.
Output the table size
Places the table in load mode. In load mode, every number received in the left inlet gets stored in the table, beginning at address 0 and continuing until the table is filled (or until the table is taken out of load mode by a
message). If more numbers are received than will fit in the size of the table, additional numbers are ignored.
Retrieve the maximum stored value
Retrieve the minimum stored value
Sends the value stored in the address pointed at by the pointer out the left outlet, then sets the pointer to the next address. If the pointer is currently at the last address in the table, it wraps around to the first address.
Takes the table out of load mode and reverts it to normal operation. See the
message for more details.
Opens the object’s graphic editor window and brings it to the foreground. Double-clicking on the table
object in a locked patcher has the same effect.
Causes the same output as the
message, but the pointer is then decremented rather than incremented. If the pointer is currently at the first address in the table, it wraps around to the last address.
Multiplies the incoming number by the sum of all the numbers in the table. This result is then divided by 2^15 (32,768). Then, table sends out the address at which the sum of all values up to that address is greater than or equal to the result.
Opens and reads data values from a file in Text or Max binary format. Without an argument,
opens a standard Open Document dialog to choose a file. If the file contains valid data, the entire contents of the existing table are replaced with the file contents.
Sets the receiving table
object to read its data values from the named table.
Sends the value stored at the incoming address to all receive
objects with that name.
Stores values in certain addresses. The first argument specifies an address. The next number is the value to be stored in that address, and each number after that is stored in a successive address.
Changes the value of one or more specific bits of a number stored in the table. The first argument is the address being referred to; the second argument is the starting bit location in the number stored at that address (the bit locations are numbered 0 to 31, from the least significant bit to the most significant bit); the third argument specifies how many bits to the right of the starting bit location should be modified, and the fourth argument is the value (stated in decimal or hexadecimal form) to which those bits should be set.
Output the sum of all values
Close the graphic editing window
Opens a standard save file dialog for choosing a name to write data values from the table. The file can be saved in Text or Max binary format.
