13-using-audio-objects.py - Using audio objects as generators.

Because Events computes its events in real time, it is possible to use the current value of audio streams as generators for parameter (even as generators for EventGenerator’s arguments). So, wherever a float or an EventGenerator is possible, a PyoObject is too.

Considering the wide range of audio signal possibilities pyo is offering, it is worthy to explore these combinations!

# LFO on the duration multiplier.
durmul1 = Sine(freq=0.1).range(0.5, 1.5)
# Random on the length of each segment.
segment1 = RandInt(max=6, freq=0.5)
# Random on the distance between segments starting points.
step1 = RandInt(max=6, freq=0.75, add=-3)
