hi all,

I'm new to this forum, and pretty new to the PD/MAX paradigm. I have a quick question that I'm sure one of you might be able to help me with. I'm wondering what the equivalent of a DEMUX object would be in PD. that's it. I just can't seem to find it in the help documentation. Thanks for your help and I love the forum- super helpful and entertaining too.javascript:emoticon('Smile')

I wish I could help, but I have never heard of a 'DEMUX' object in max!? Maybe I am not looking hard enough (and I haven't got max within reach now)

I could suggest reading some PD/MAX documentation:

http://puredata.info/docs/

http://www.cycling74.com/twiki/bin/view/ProductDocumentation

All answers are somewhere in the documentation, asking questions on a forum is a great way of learning and teaching others, but try and go through the manuals first!! It will help you a lot!

Are you using max or pd?




ps. I did find something:

"ice.mux/demux - Pack/unpack which preserves inlet-outlet mappings"

...but this is an object which is part of an expansion for max called 'iCE'!

Here's a link to info on that object:

http://www.dspaudio.com/software/ice/ice_muxdemux.html

"Mux and Demux are special pack/unpack replacement objects that feature strict inlet to outlet alignment of all data. For those curious, these objects transmit and process null values when items aren't present in order to keep lists tidy."

I have to say I've been wanting to spend more time with Pd, but haven't yet.

But, I'd suggest looking through switches, "one of", select, or even mixers to expand your search terms.

hey again,

I'm using PD. Just switched over from Jmax which is way too unstable for my tastes. Can't really justify spending the bread on Max/MSP right now, but want to get my feet wet nonetheless.

So, I'm looking for an object in PD that Bangs n number of outputs in sequential order when a bang is received at the left input. I've done this in Jmax with the Demux object (which may not even exist in Max/Msp, I'm not certain) but any other object that performs this function would suit my needs.

Thanks for the (timely) reply!

In max this would be [trigger bang bang etcetera], so in PD try [t b b b] (add as many bangs as you need outputs)

I made a small example:

The trigger object accepts whatever message and will use it as a trigger, if you add arguments such as 'int' or 'float', you are able to route values through the trigger object to whatever output you specify! Remember the right to left order! Good luck!

that works great. I found another way to route control messages with the select object, but tbbb will work better. thanks.
