cosseg

cosseg — Trace a series of line segments between specified points with cosine interpolation.

Description

Trace a series of line segments between specified points with cosine interpolation.

Syntax

ares cosseg ia, idur1, ib [, idur2] [, ic] [...]
kres cosseg ia, idur1, ib [, idur2] [, ic] [...]

Initialization

ia -- starting value.

ib, ic, etc. -- value after dur1 seconds, etc.

idur1 -- duration in seconds of first segment. A zero or negative value will cause all initialization to be skipped.

idur2, idur3, etc. -- duration in seconds of subsequent segments. A zero or negative value will terminate the initialization process with the preceding point, permitting the last-defined line or curve to be continued indefinitely in performance. The default is zero.

Performance

These units generate control or audio signals whose values can pass through 2 or more specified points. The sum of dur values may or may not equal the instrument's performance time: a shorter performance will truncate the specified pattern, while a longer one will cause the last value to be repeated until the end of the note.

Examples

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