initc7 — Initializes the controller used to create a 7-bit MIDI value.


Initializes MIDI controller ictlno with ivalue


initc7 ichan, ictlno, ivalue


ichan -- MIDI channel (1-16)

ictlno -- controller number (0-127)

ivalue -- floating point value (must be within 0 to 1)


initc7 can be used together with both midic7 and ctrl7 opcodes for initializing the first controller's value. ivalue argument must be set with a number within 0 to 1. An error occurs if it is not. Use the following formula to set ivalue according with midic7 and ctrl7 min and max range:

ivalue = (initial_value - min) / (max - min)


Here is an example of the initc7 opcode. It uses the file initc7.csd.

Thanks goes to Rasmus Ekman for pointing out the correct MIDI channel and controller number ranges.
