How do you convert a gate into a trigger?

0 votes

In the index of Kyma X Revealed under "Gate" it says "see Trigger".

Am I right in thinking that kyma doesn't really distinguish between gates and triggers?

If I wanted a rhythmic trigger that was very brief, say 0.001s is there a better way than doing this?:

1 bpm: !BPM dutyCycle: 1 s / ((!BPM bpm s) * 1000)

please give switchedOn a try. It takes the rising edge of a gate and converts it into a Trigger. In your case it will look like this:

(1 bpm: !BPM) switchedOn

the bpm: expression gives us a voice stealing gate. Sometimes it is better to take the Trigger expression in order to get a clean reset in Capytalk (i.e. in countTriggerMod: Reset:)

in Capytalk, the shortest trigger is a 1ms trigger and as Knut points out, is generated by `switchedOn ` ... you also can get one on the falling edge with `switchedOff`
