    Hey that's great thanks! I will try that out :) I have now edited it so that theres more room in the MIN-MAX bit for setting parameters so its less fiddly, so the numbers will be a bit different but I think I'm pretty much understanding how it works now...just need to have a mess around with it. Thanks again!

    Hi

    So I have edited it to add more parameters and make it bigger. I have put in a parameter called 'sequence randomiser' and set it up so that when you bang it, you can select a key for the sequence to be randomised in from the Min-Max section at the bottom of the slider, you can then use the bang again to select that sequence.

    What I would like to do is implement is a similar system to the one on the right hand side of the patch, which makes the slider snap to each parameter, on MIN-MAX section, only for the time that the 'sequence randomiser' parameter is selected. However, I am struggling to get my head round the expr which is calculating this process so am unable to modify it in order to effect the MIN-MAX section. I've attached the patch so you can have a look.

    If you have time to have a look at this would be totally great :) thanks in advance Synth_Slider_Controller.pd

    Brilliant! Thanks again, I may return to you with some more questions about this patch over the next week or two if that is okay :)

    Hi

    Glad you found me :)

    Awesome, I can't thank you enough for all this help. I really want to get into pure data as I love how powerful it is and how creative you can be but sometimes it can be a bit hard to get my head round as I come from a musical background and not a programming one.

    I (more or less) understand everything except the expressions. I have looked up how expressions work but am still struggling to understand exactly what they are doing and why. I kind of get the one on the expression connected directly to the moses is basically determining which part of the slider you are clicking on right?? The expression on the left, however, coming out of the t f f, I am struggling to understand the formula in it.. Is it basically just estimating which point you are closest to?

    Thanks again! and sorry for my poor understanding, I have only started using pure data in January!

    Cheers

    Hi

    So for my university assignment I had to make any patch I wanted, the only condition being that it is controlled only with a slider and a button (bang). I made a synth thinking that it would be fairly easy to create a system in which the slider could select different parameters for itself to control which could then be activated by the bang.

    After trying for a bit I was at a pure loss so posted in the pure data group on facebook looking for help. As always, the pure data community provided help instantly and someone created the exact patch that I need. However, I need to integrate it into my synth patch, and I need to add more parameters and as a pure data (and programming) noob the way it works is going COMPLETELY over my head and to use it in (or make a version of it for) my assignment I have to understand it.

    Is there any chance someone could have a look and explain in noob terms step by step what is happening in this patch? Thanks in advance so much!

    Awesome! I've been reading about this stuff all night but I'm clearly going to need to spend a good bit of time actually researching how PM synthesis works before I'm able to implement this successfully. Thanks for the patch its gonna help a lot :)

    I did think that might have been the case. I am out of my depth with this stuff, but I saw you mentioned phase above and I had heard before that the DX7 by Yamaha, for example, uses phase modulation synthesis so I figured that might have been the case. I know nothing about it, however, so will need to do some research there. Thanks so much for sharing your patch though and for the help you have provided. Am I right in saying that the FM8 by Native Instruments uses phase modulation synthesis then, as opposed to "real FM" ? And also that you can only make the operators feedback into themselves if you use PM?

    Okay thanks. A lot of this is over my head so far to be honest but I'm pretty determined to understand it so I will spend some time on this patch and do some research to figure out how it works. Thanks for all the help !
