gainslider — An implementation of a logarithmic gain curve which is similar to the gainslider~ object from Cycling 74 Max / MSP.


This opcode is intended for use to multiply by an audio signal to give a console mixer like feel. There is no bounds in the source code so you can for example give higher than 127 values for extra amplitude but possibly clipped audio.


kout gainslider kindex


kindex -- Index value. Nominal range from 0-127. For example a range of 0-152 will give you a range from -∞ to +18.0 dB.

kout -- Scaled output.


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