Feature request/query

Wed Jul 02, 2014 2:41 am

Hello,
I am not sure if this feature already exists or not - it is, to my mind, so basic, and I still cannot do what I want... Otherwise it is really an excellent tool.
Anyway, what I want to do is to synchronize an object movement with MIDI note event.
What I do is introduce a "Translate" module which is the only way to "move" an object. The problem is - I can make an object to "jerk" synchronously to the MIDI note (using Offset parameter), but I cannot introduce the synchronized "start move" event to the object, after which the module would at a certain speed move and then return to original position ("dancing object"). I also can use the "Ramp" parameter, so that the object would move smoothly, but then it is NOT synchronized to the MIDI note event. So, I guess, I want the "Ramp" to be synchronized to the MIDI event.
Even more complicated task is how to to synchronize the GLSL program to MIDI events.
Regards,
Vlad

Hi Vlad, I think what you want to do is use a Peak modifier with one of the parameters in the Translate module. The Peak modifier will respond to the audio immediately, but it will smooth the decay so you get a movement that is less jerky. You can also use a Smooth modifier after the Peak modifier to smooth the movement even more.

Try that and let me know if it helps.
