Multiply two signals

*~

Description

*~ is a signal multiplier-operator that outputs a signal which is the multiplication between two signals.

Examples

Scale a signal's amplitude by a constant or changing value, or by another audio signal

Arguments

initial-multiplier [number]

Optional

Sets an initial value by which to multiply the signal coming into the left inlet. If a signal is connected to the right inlet, the argument is ignored. If no argument is present, and no signal is connected to the right inlet, the initial value is 0 by default.

int

Arguments

input [int]
In left inlet: A factor by which to multiply the signal coming into the right inlet. If a signal is connected to both left and right inlets, a float or int connected to either inlet will be ignored.

In right inlet: A factor by which to multiply the signal coming into the left inlet. If a signal is connected to both left and right inlets, a float or int connected to either inlet will be ignored.

float

Arguments

input [float]
In left inlet: A factor by which to multiply the signal coming into the right inlet. If a signal is connected to both left and right inlets, a float or int connected to either inlet will be ignored.

In right inlet: A factor by which to multiply the signal coming into the left inlet. If a signal is connected to both left and right inlets, a float or int connected to either inlet will be ignored.

signal

In left inlet: The signal is multiplied by the signal coming into the right inlet, or a constant value received in the right inlet. All signal inputs to a single inlet are summed. If a signal and number are both sent to the left inlet, the specified operation will be performed with those values.

In right inlet: The signal is multiplied by the signal coming into the left inlet, or a constant value received in the left inlet. All signal inputs to a single inlet are summed.

Output

signal

The product of the two inputs.
