[PD] Sigmund~ parameters

Ok folks, never mind, I did some more testing with sigmund~ and I do now see that minpower and growth seems to be working. It works in a way I'm not quite sure to understand so I find it hard to use those parameters in a meaningful, predictable way, but I guess that's because of my limited understanding of what's going on exactly under the hood.

Thanks for your reply. Yes I did some testing with fiddle and Helmholtz, If I need to I'll get to that in an other question.
My question wasn't clear enough sorry about that. I would like first to clarify some aspect of the sigmund "notes" mode which seems very straight forward in the help file, namely growth and minpower parameter, but which in practice I find it doesn't quite work as expected. As anyone ever managed to get significantly different output by changing those two parameters? Are they working at all, and if so can anyone explain for the record how they actually work? Or maybe I'm missing something obvious?
I'll ask a clearer question regarding other specific strategies for refining pitch tracking result soon, thank you for your help.

Haven't tried [sigmund~], but [fiddle~] and [helmholtz~] (the latter by Katja Vetter) and I found [both fine but [helmholtz~] a bit better for my taste. I think it's a bit more responsive. What if you combine this with [env~] for example and this way you get pitch and amplitude...

>I've been working on a patch for quite a few months now which involves pitch tracking. I've explored many possible solutions, considering the pros and cons of every approach, made different tests, etc. I've also done a lot of reading (help files, forums, etc), but I couldn't find satisfying answers to all my questions. I am now in front of 4 or 5 different approach, each of which requires to do a certain number of compromise at different level. My feeling is that I am now at the point where I could possibly eliminate some of those compromise with your help.
>I have a lot of questions, but I'll start with one regarding Sigmund's notes parameters. I've done a lot of tests, changing one parameter at a time. I found that only the stable time and vibrato parameters seems to be affecting the output the way it should. The other parameters - growth and minpower - doesn't seem to be working the way it's described in the help file. Am I the only person who noticed that? When I looked in the list archives, I found someone else mentioning this issue but nobody replied (and i lost the link to the thread).
>I'm using my patch to track the pitch of a violin. What I'm trying to do is to convert the pitch of the violon into the most accurate "note on" message possible (with midi note and velocity). I need this patch to be as responsive as possible but also with as few insignificant output as possible.
