trigger

trigger — Informs when a krate signal crosses a threshold.

Description

Informs when a krate signal crosses a threshold.

Syntax

kout trigger ksig, kthreshold, kmode

Performance

ksig -- input signal

kthreshold -- trigger threshold

kmode -- can be 0 , 1 or 2

Normally trigger outputs zeroes: only each time ksig crosses kthreshold trigger outputs a 1. There are three modes of using ktrig:

  • kmode = 0 - (down-up) ktrig outputs a 1 when current value of ksig is higher than kthreshold, while old value of ksig was equal to or lower than kthreshold.

  • kmode = 1 - (up-down) ktrig outputs a 1 when current value of ksig is lower than kthreshold while old value of ksig was equal or higher than kthreshold.

  • kmode = 2 - (both) ktrig outputs a 1 in both the two previous cases.

Examples

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

See the sections Real-time Audio and Command Line Flags for more information on using command line flags.
