scantable

scantable — A simpler scanned synthesis implementation.

Description

A simpler scanned synthesis implementation. This is an implementation of a circular string scanned using external tables. This opcode will allow direct modification and reading of values with the table opcodes.

Syntax

aout scantable kamp, kpch, ipos, imass, istiff, idamp, ivel

Initialization

ipos -- table containing position array.

imass -- table containing the mass of the string.

istiff -- table containing the stiffness of the string.

idamp -- table containing the damping factors of the string.

ivel -- table containing the velocities.

Performance

kamp -- amplitude (gain) of the string.

kpch -- the string's scanned frequency.

Examples

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