sc_lag — Exponential Lag (DEPRECATED)


Plugin opcode in scugens.

Exponential lag with 60dB lag time. DEPRECATED (renamed as lag)


aout sc_lag ain, klagtime [, initialvalue]
kout sc_lag kin, klagtime [, initialvalue]


initialvalue If given, sets the internal state. It defaults to the first value passed


ain -- input signal

klagtime -- 60 dB lag time in seconds.

kladown -- 60 dB lag time in seconds for the downgoing signal.

This is essentially the same as one pole except that instead of supplying the coefficient directly, it is calculated from a 60 dB lag time. This is the time required for the filter to converge to within 0.01% of a value. This is useful for smoothing out control signals.


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