Jacob what setup in Pure Data would be able to simulate a control flow such as ‘if snapshot output is between 0 and 0.4, send a ‘2’ as input to x object, if snapshot output is between 0.4 and 0.6, send a ‘3’ as input to that object, etc.
here's what i used running a string of (on/off) buttons on a resistor ladder into an analog input.
some context: for this patch i used up all my digital inputs, so i hooked up the extra buttons i needed to a resistor ladder. meaning each button would send in a different voltage to the analog input. so then it was a matter of detecting which voltage was coming in, to recognise it as a certain button being pressed.
short answer; try [moses]
not sure about efficiency, though, but it never gave me any trouble.
