Ahhhh! Now I think I understand. Perhaps you want a "debounce", so that
your key can only be triggered once within a certain amount of time?
This is normally handled in the dataflow of your patch, rather than by
the [hid] the object itself. See the attached patch for one method of
debouncing an input.
If this isn't what you need, have a look at the part with the "greater
than or equal to" object [>=]. This gives a "0" or a "1" as output which
can be used to open and close a [spigot].
For example, [>= 100] and [<= 200] would both give "1" if the number
from your counter was between 100 and 200.
Then, [==] could compare the outputs of both and if they are the same,
it would give a "1", and otherwise a "0".
It really pays to learn a bit more about the dataflow within PD, rather
than expecting high level objects to do all the work for you! ;-)
