samphold — Performs a sample-and-hold operation on its input.


Performs a sample-and-hold operation on its input.


ares samphold asig, agate [, ival] [, ivstor]
kres samphold ksig, kgate [, ival] [, ivstor]


ival, ivstor (optional) -- controls initial disposition of internal save space. If ivstor is zero the internal hold value is set to ival ; else it retains its previous value. Defaults are 0,0 (i.e. init to zero)


kgate, xgate -- controls whether to hold the signal.

samphold performs a sample-and-hold operation on its input according to the value of gate. If gate != 0, the input samples are passed to the output; if gate = 0, the last output value is repeated. The controlling gate can be a constant, a control signal, or an audio signal.


asrc  buzz      10000, 440, 20, 1     ; band-limited pulse train
adif  diff      asrc                  ; emphasize the highs
anew  balance   adif, asrc            ;   but retain the power
agate reson     asrc, 0, 440          ; use a lowpass of the original
asamp samphold  anew, agate           ;   to gate the new audiosig
aout  tone      asamp, 100            ; smooth out the rough edges

Here is another example of the samphold opcode. It uses the file samphold.csd.
