[PD] pd and CMask

I am working on something at the moment that will be similar to what CMask
does, I am hoping to release it tomorrow, but I suspect that there are still
some parts that need a bit of work. I am trying to make it such that you can
use it in Real Time, with the ability to capture and recall parameter sets.

Basically, I have a Lua object that allows for the use of a Mask (allowing
the control of Mapping [scaling with a power function] an incoming value,
scaling it to an arbitrary range, quantizing it, and then adding an offset
to the signal), along with an input buffer (to provide for using previous
values in the input stream). It is not exactly like CMask, but I believe
that it would be very useful for many applications.

The jist of what I am doing is that you create the mask object, and then
send it a "buildgui" message to create all the PD gui objects required by
the Mask. This, I hope, would make for a very simple method of creating an
interface to the controlled parameters. I currently have two different
implementations of its use up and working, one for controlling a MIDI
instrument, and another for controlling a sinewave grain generator. I also
believe that creating new implementations (for controlling other types of
things, ie GEM) would be very simple.

If you would like, I could forward a copy to you, if I can't quite get it
ready for "release". I would appreciate any feedback you might offer.

Peace may sound simple—one beautiful word— but it requires everything we
