interp

interp — Converts a control signal to an audio signal using linear interpolation.

Description

Converts a control signal to an audio signal using linear interpolation.

Syntax

ares interp ksig [, iskip] [, imode]

Initialization

iskip (optional, default=0) -- initial disposition of internal save space (see reson). The default value is 0.

imode (optional, default=0) -- sets the initial output value to the first k-rate input instead of zero. The following graphs show the output of interp with a constant input value, in the original, when skipping init, and in the new mode:

Example 390. iskip=0, imode=0

Example 391. iskip=1, imode=0

Performance

ksig -- input k-rate signal.

interp converts a control signal to an audio signal. It uses linear interpolation between successive kvals.

Examples

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