ModDif

Minimum difference of two values in modulo arithmetics
Inherits from: UGen : AbstractFunction : Object

Description

Returns the minimum difference of two values in modulo arithmetics. On a circle, there are two distances between two points. This UGen returns the smaller value of the two.

{ var a = Line.ar(0, 4, 0.01), d = ModDif.ar(a); [a, d] }.plot;
{ var a = Line.ar(0, 4, 0.01); ModDif.ar(a, 0, (1..4)) }.plot;
{ var a = Line.ar(0, 4, 0.01); ModDif.ar(a, (0, 0.25 .. 1), 1) }.plot;

Class Methods

*ar (x: 0, y: 0, mod: 1)

*kr (x: 0, y: 0, mod: 1)

*ir (x: 0, y: 0, mod: 1)

Arguments:

x

First input value

y

Second input value

mod

Modulo (maximum value, double of the maximal difference).

// different moduli
(
{
    var sig = LFSaw.ar(10);
    var dist = ModDif.kr(sig, 0, (0..8) * MouseX.kr(0, 1/5));
    Splay.ar(SinOsc.ar(dist * 4000 + 400)) * 0.1
}.play;
)

// wrapping amplitude crossfade
(
{
    var numChan = 12;
    var x = SinOsc.ar({ rrand(300.0, 800.0) } ! numChan);
    var dist = ModDif.kr(MouseX.kr(0, numChan * 2), (0..numChan-1), numChan);
    x = x * max(0, 1 - dist);
    Splay.ar(x) * 0.1
}.play;
)
