pvsfreeze — Freeze the amplitude and frequency time functions of a pv stream according to a control-rate trigger.


This opcodes 'freezes' the evolution of pvs stream by locking into steady amplitude and/or frequency values for each bin. The freezing is controlled, independently for amplitudes and frequencies, by a control-rate trigger, which switches the freezing 'on' if equal to or above 1 and 'off' if below 1.


fsig pvsfreeze fsigin, kfreeza, kfreezf


fsig -- output pv stream

fsigin -- input pv stream.

kfreeza -- freezing switch for amplitudes. Freezing is on if above or equal to 1 and off if below 1.

kfcf -- freezing switch for frequencies. Freezing is on if above or equal to 1 and off if below 1.

[Warning] Warning

It is unsafe to use the same f-variable for both input and output of pvs opcodes. Using the same one might lead to undefined behavior on some opcodes. Use a different one on the left and right sides of the opcode.


Example 851. Example

asig  in                                       ; input
ktrig oscil     1.5, 0.25, 1                   ; trigger
fim   pvsanal   asig1, 1024, 256, 1024, 0      ; pvoc analysis 
fou   pvsfreeze fim, abs(ktrig), abs(ktrig)    ; regular 'freeze' of spectra
aout  pvsynth   fou                            ; pvoc synthesis

In the example above the input signal will be regularly 'frozen' for a short while, as the trigger rises above 1 about every two seconds.

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