Is it gauche for me to reply to this ancient post? At least that rhymes (sort of)!
I want to do nearly the same thing, but I don't like the inelegance of resetting the [max] with a clock. I would like to be able to see the highest of, say, the previous 100 numbers... and so it would continuously change, rather than at clock-based jumps.
I'm using something similar (actually, with [min]) to easily monitor some number streams with a VU. The basic output works fine, but I'm trying to use the peak-level-input to hover around the low end. When I reset [min] with a clock, it jumps up higher than I'd like.
[average] is cool, in the way that it keeps track of a stream of numbers... that's the sorta thing I'm after. Anyone have any ideas?
(see, if my number-stream glided up from, say, (0 - 100) to (50 - 1000), I'd like to see the Peak-Level drift up from 0 to 50. With a clock-based reset, it might jump to 75 while the stream is still in the 0 - 100 range.)
