Hi William and list,

I write here because the informations could be of interest to more people.

I was trying out with [bark], and had some questions.

What are the limits of the parameters thresh, mask, debounce and
filter_range? Or are there none, only making the analysis last longer the
higher the parameters are set?
A related question, do you have a kind of preset for the analysis
parameters adequate for certain types of sounds? As I only see the output
of the analysis, I can't preview exactly how the change in parameters
affects the result - although that might be a question of experience...

Is the output of the middle and right outlets explained somewhere? What is  
it and what's its format?

Would the debug output be more useful if it had an index of the analyzed  
onset before the values?

Why the [moses 200] in the measure subpatch? Wouldn't the restraining of  
values make a false analysis? Or you did it because of the concrete Satie  

(The debounce parameter was explained in 2 different places in the patch.)

I redesigned your help patch, so that it's now a general-purpose analysis  
tool. Later will also display of the analysis results over the audio  
array. If you're interested, I can send it to the list.
