How to design a VU-meter ?

I'm using a SpectrumAnalyzerDisplay but that is not really what i need, i just need to check if there is some signal going at some point in the flow, not the spectrum just the level.

This Kyma 7 is more than awesome.

Here's an example as a starting point that you could play around with and modify.

Another approach would be to send your Sound through a SoundToGlobalController on one branch and send it down the regular audio signal path on the other branch:

You could even go so far as to design all the sprites you would need for a segmented graphical VU meter, and animated it using ImageDisplay and the value coming from the SoundToGlobalController !

Hi Cristian,

Very good idea! The ImageDisplay module could bring Kyma to another level. It would be nice to have some basic graphic components for kyma to build even more complex visual responses. Someone out there who wants to do that? Or even SSC? My graphical knowledge is kind of limited :)
