      i have 4 partials and they can have 16 combinations.
      i’ve decided the best way to do this is to just list
      all 16 combinations, as it isn’t very long.

      say the partials are called P1, P2, P3, P4
      and i want to say, for example:
      if P1==1, P2==0, P3==0, P4==1

      ie: partial states are on, off, off, on

      what is the correct way to do this? i’ve just put a
      comma there for the example.

        Yes, you can do it something like this (not tested)

        local p1 = nil
        local p2 = nil
        local p3 = nil
        local p4 = nil  
        local sum = nil
        if panel:getModulatorByName("P1"):getValue() == 0 then p1 = 0 else p1 = 1 end
        if panel:getModulatorByName("P2"):getValue() == 0 then p2 = 0 else p2 = 1 end
        if panel:getModulatorByName("P3"):getValue() == 0 then p3 = 0 else p3 = 1 end
        if panel:getModulatorByName("P4"):getValue() == 0 then p4 = 0 else p4 = 1 end
        
        sum = (p1*1) + (p2*2) + (p3*4) + (p3*8)

        sum variable will give you a unique value for every possible combination.

          oh…
          that looks pretty inscrutable to me.
          i looked at the D-50 panel, and it has this:


          — Called when a modulator value changes
          — @mod http://ctrlr.org/api/class_ctrlr_modulator.html
          — @value new numeric value of the modulator

          –PartialsOnOff = function(value)

          P1 = panel:getModulatorByName(“Partial1_OnOff”):getModulatorValue()
          P2 = panel:getModulatorByName(“Partial2_OnOff”):getModulatorValue()
          P3 = panel:getModulatorByName(“Partial3_OnOff”):getModulatorValue()
          P4 = panel:getModulatorByName(“Partial4_OnOff”):getModulatorValue()

          —LowerPartial = (LowerP1 + LowerP2)
          —UpperPartial = (UpperP1 + UpperP2)

          if P1 == 1 then
          panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x00, 0x14, 0x12, 0x00, 0x02, 0x6e, 0x01, 0x0f, 0xf7})) end
          if P2 == 1 then
          panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x00, 0x14, 0x12, 0x00, 0x02, 0x6e, 0x02, 0x0e, 0xf7})) end
          —if LowerPartial == 2 then
          —panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x00, 0x14, 0x12, 0x00, 0x02, 0x6e, 0x03, 0x0d, 0xf7}))
          —elseif LowerPartial == 0 then
          —panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x00, 0x14, 0x12, 0x00, 0x02, 0x6e, 0x00, 0x10, 0xf7}))
          end

          if P3 == 1 then
          panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x00, 0x14, 0x12, 0x00, 0x01, 0x2e, 0x01, 0x50, 0xf7})) end
          if P4 == 1 then
          panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x00, 0x14, 0x12, 0x00, 0x01, 0x2e, 0x02, 0x4f, 0xf7})) end
          —if UpperPartial == 2 then
          —panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x00, 0x14, 0x12, 0x00, 0x01, 0x2e, 0x03, 0x4e, 0xf7}))

          end

          end

            seeing that the D50 is not strictly the same as the D110,
            i messed around a bit, and thought of what could be needed,
            ie: why not a condition for each of the available possibilities
            -this was mainly to have a look at it, and think about it/show
            what i’m after – so (don’t laugh) this is where i got to:

            so, now, i don’t know how to present the states of P1/P2/P3/P4
            toggle buttons (0/1, off/on) but i thought it might not be too
            terrible to have all 16 lines/possibles, and do something that
            way. i have zero clue about programming or syntax, *obviously*.

            (the message is wrong, but note the value changes. this is essentially
            what i want to/need to achieve)

              I think you are not far away. Correct syntax for such multiple if conditions: instead of your + symbol put an “and”, like this.

              if P1 == 1 and P2 == 1 and P3 == 1 and P4 == 1 then
              panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x10, 0x16, 0x12, 0x04, 0x00, 0x0c, 0x0f, 0x00, 0xf7})) end

                thank you both. very interested in dasfaker’s expression,
                and how that works. different level for the no(ew)bie!
                (and how do you show it in a box? i get a feeling it isn’t
                good to post this stuff ‘raw’ in the forum text – this forum
                takes ages to start up in my browser)
                would be really good to get an explanation of what each
                part means – or some simple reference to read(without
                having to read the whole book, yet)
                ———–
                right, so: i’ve tried to do the expression in full with checksums,
                and for visibility/legibility i included the binary count, ren-ed
                (if that’s what it’s called?) – which makes me think it’s more
                convenient to list P1/P2/P3/P4 backwards as P4/P3/P2/P1 to match –
                (but i didn’t yet)
                so here’s what i’m suggesting, in full:

                how does that look? i don’t know how many ‘-‘ to use for a ‘ren’,
                it doesn’t look like it matters too much (at least 2 with space?)

                is this *too long*?
                how does it compare with dasfaker’s? and is that a more elegant
                formula? i don’t know the maths/logic, so …

                (aaw f***, have 3 cats here, squabbling…f*** off you cats…)

                  ok, so i’m inputting that anyway for now, as ‘myMethod partials’.
                  i just pasted all that into luaModulatorValueChange, and it doesn’t
                  look like it’s right, because the bar is red..oh i don’t seem to be
                  able to examine it now…oh it’s because it’s already open in a window.

                  the ‘function’ tag was not highlighted blue, like in the example.
                  i used ‘add new method’don’t think it will work yet, this is a
                  familiarisation stage. all suggestions welcome at this point.

                  lets append the text file here>see attached:
                  lua method Partials select.txt

                  i’ve disabled ‘sysex’ at midiMessageType, but i’ve left the original
                  midiMessageSysexFormula where it was; don’t think that will do any harm.

                  small separate question: i’m using the UIbuttonContent entry as
                  the button title display (Component) but i’ve got a feeling this
                  could interfere with the button’s state? or is it ok? i’ve got
                  the same thing for the pitchbend enable buttons, it was to save
                  UI space at construction stage. i guess i could find another way
                  for that if it’s problematic. i was just seeing what i could exploit
                  with the UI display options provided by the program, at the time.

                    You code is correct, just replace the “end” with “elseif”

                    if P1 == 1 and P2 == 0 and P3 == 1 and P4 == 1 then
                    panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x10, 0x16, 0x12, 0x04, 0x00, 0x0c, 0x0d, 0x63, 0xf7}))
                    elseif ....

                    My code just lacks the midi message, but you get the same result.

                    local p1 = nil 
                    local p2 = nil
                    local p3 = nil
                    local p4 = nil  
                    local sum = nil
                    
                    if panel:getModulatorByName("P1"):getValue() == 0 then p1 = 0 else p1 = 1 end
                    if panel:getModulatorByName("P2"):getValue() == 0 then p2 = 0 else p2 = 1 end
                    if panel:getModulatorByName("P3"):getValue() == 0 then p3 = 0 else p3 = 1 end
                    if panel:getModulatorByName("P4"):getValue() == 0 then p4 = 0 else p4 = 1 end
                    
                    sum = (p1*1) + (p2*2) + (p3*4) + (p4*8)
                    
                    panel:sendMidiMessageNow(CtrlrMidiMessage({0xf0, 0x41, 0x10, 0x16, 0x12, 0x04, 0x00, 0x0c, sum, 112 - sum, 0xf7}))

                      I support dasfaker’s way of programming.
                      Always try to analyze the logic and build a formula rather than coding all possible cases!
                      Easier maintenance, less text, less risk of errors (all or nothing works)… 🙂

                      Try to gradually learn that, human fly. You will feel good each time you derive some few lines formulas instead of trying enumerating all possibilities.
                      Good luck!

                          woo-hoo – do my little dance – so, what does elseif do/mean?
                          forgive me, but i do not have the slightest idea yet about
                          any of this 🙂

                          yes, i fully appreciate that a nice elegant form is more
                          economical and efficient, but that was the first time i’ve
                          even seen what dasfaker showed me. i have a fair experience
                          with boolean logic using synthedit, and have built some
                          fairly complex structures there with it – although i wouldn’t
                          say it was economical, i just had to get stuff to work. the
                          thing about that is that it is all visual, so you get immediate
                          feedback.

                          i will of course try to understand it now. i’m of the school
                          of get-it-working-and-sort-it-out-later. (and i think we’re all
                          learning Ctrlr that way, right?)

                          salut Dom’, Dom ici aussi 😉

                              ok, this refers to the Ctrlr modulator/button itself. k so the first part

                                Sorry Dominic. Try finding equivalent stuff where you will learn programming. In fact you can learn with whatever language. Each of them have their specific syntax that you must get used to, each of them have also specific ways of handling data BUT all share the same basic elements (declaring variables, loops, conditions, input/output, functions/subroutines…).

                                In the beginning above, you declare the variables (=placeholders) that will contain some data. They are initialized to nil which is a special wor din Lua saying “empty”

                                local means that the variables are only valid within this function. You can use the same variable name in another function and it will be different. If you are not using the keyword local then you can share the content of the same variables throughout your complete program/panel

                                Then you have 4 condition statements if something is true then do this else do that end
                                panel:getModulatorByName(“P1”):getValue() is something specific to Ctrlr implementation. You use it to retrieve a value from a modulator.

                                each Pn is a 0 or a 1 and thus represents a bit in binary (base 2)
                                a decimal number is a number in base 10. You can express the same number (0 to 15 for example) in binary with 4 bits (P1 to P4) by multiplying each bit to its corresponding value.

                                10 = 0 x (10 exp 0) + 1 x (10 exp 1) this is decimal representation
                                10 = 0 x (2 exp 0) + 1 x (2 exp 1) + 0 x (2 exp 2) + 1 x (2 exp 3) = 1010 in binary
                                10 = 0x1 + 1×2 + 0x4 + 1×8
                                You find back the formula used by dasfaker to calculate a sum…

                                THen you observer all your if statements and you will see that first a sum is calculated then 112-sum is also calculated. All the rest remaining the same…

                                To this explanation, you should know about hexadecimal representation… Like binary (base 2), decimal (base 10) you have hexadecimal (base 16)
                                In hexa, you go 01 to 09 then A, B, C, D, E and F to reach 15
                                So, 10 = 0A = 0101

                                Now you can understand dasfaker’s code and the message that is sent 🙂

                                So many things to learn…What a wonderfull world!

                                  Great. I couldn’t explain it better, I have no academic programming formation (what I know was learned here) and English is still a barrier for me. I even still get lost when talking about bits, binaries and all that naming stuff.

                                  Einstein said once that you don’t understand something until you can make you grandma understand it… so there’s a long way ahead.

                                    to put code on a post, select the text and press the button “code”.

                                    Doesn’t seem to work for my code-snippet…

                                      It works here

                                      I see two yellow text fields over the buttons saying:

                                      “You can use BBCodes to format your content”
                                      “Your account has the ability to post unrestricted HTML content”

                                      Maybe some of you don’t have this option?

                                        trying again

                                        a- haa, worked this time: click code to create an
                                        apostrophe, type whatever, and your ‘code’ button
                                        now is ‘/code’ and when you’re done click it again,
                                        and it closes the apostrophied part, and it comes
                                        out in red like that.

                                        that is a superb explanation, loads of starter info,
                                        thanks.

                                          i did at one point have ambitions to write my sequencers
                                          in C++, but i had to put it off. i think you might have
                                          just got me a little bit closer to being able to do stuff
                                          like that.

                                          at least i know what ‘declaring variables’ means now lol.
                                          i’m pretty conversant with hex, i keep a table on my desktop

                                          sum = (p1*1) + (p2*2) + (p3*4) + (p4*8)
                                          yes, of course, if high, bit=1, bit2=2 bit3=4, bit4=8,
                                          and it’s either 0x or 1x

                                          what does exp mean?
                                          and where does 112 come from?

                                            exp = exponent
                                            2 exp 0 = 1
                                            2 exp 1 = 2
                                            2 exp 2 = 2 x 2 = 4
                                            2 exp 3 = 2 x 2 x 2 = 8
                                            etc…

                                            Didn’t check the actual content/meaning of the message (just looked at it to explain) so I let dasfaker explaining the 112-sum…

                                            4 cats here but they are sleeping right now…
                                            Looks like many of us with synths are also having cats.
                                            Worth a thesis to understand 😉
