You don't.  But you can process the output of fiddle~ in any way you wish.
 There, you can use only the ranges you need.

not sure what you mean...  but...  you can use that information in any way
you wish.  You will most likely use those as control messages so [sig~] will
perhaps not be necessary.

[sig~] is simply a float to signal converter for the objects that need a
signal as an input, for example the [osc~] object, when created without arguments.  Connect
the output from [sig~] to [osc~] (no arguments) and you should hear a sine
wave that will follow the raw frequency of your input signal.  But you can
bypass [sig~] and connect directly to [osc~ arg] (where "arg" is any float)
and you should get the same behaviour.

<some-number> -> [sig~] -> [osc~] -> [dac~]
<some-number> -> [osc~ 220] -> [dac~]
