zarg

zarg — Reads from a location in za space at a-rate, adds some gain.

Description

Reads from a location in za space at a-rate, adds some gain.

Syntax

ares zarg kndx, kgain

Initialization

kndx -- points to the za location to be read.

kgain -- multiplier for the a-rate signal.

Performance

zarg reads the array of floats at kndx in za space, which are ksmps number of a-rate floats to be processed in a k cycle. zarg also multiplies the a-rate signal by a k-rate value kgain.

Examples

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