Fall down in Peak Meter

  • How to create fall down Indicator in peak Meter like this example?Fall.gif

  • @Tania-Ghosh - put another slider over the indicator (that has the "fall down" element only) and then use a timer...

  • @Lindon images.jpg I never created peak meter before.

  • @Tania-Ghosh you can't make a peak meter with just a timer.
    A timer checks the signal (in fact a hise peak meter) every 30ms for instance, which means every 1440 samples at 48khz. Even if the measured signal is already smoothed out or dampened in the Hise meters, you'll miss a lot of information in between. Think if the peak happened between 2 measures, the meter you are measuring is already falling, giving you nothing about the peak that caused it to raise.
    I have never made a peak meter myself, but I'm pretty sure you need to directly analyse every samples to be sure you detect the culprit. Then displaying it is another matter.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that a peak can actually lie between two samples up to 3db above!
    Wich makes a sample peak detection not yet a true peak detector... (this is partly why I'd like to be able to pass in arrays between interface and SNEX / Scriptnode graphs in both directions)
