Pbrown brownian motion pattern

superclass: Pattern

Pbrown(lo, hi, step, length)

Returns a stream that behaves like a brownian motion.

lo, hi - lower and upper boundary of values  (default: 0.0 and 1.0)

step - maximum change per step - the distribution is xrand2.  (default: 0.125)

length - number of values produced (default: inf)

// example

(

var a;

a = Pbrown(0.0, 1.0, 0.1, inf);

c = a.asStream.nextN(500);

w = Window.new("Pbrown", Rect(10, 10, 540, 800));

// plot the values

c.plot(bounds: Rect(10, 10, 520, 380), discrete: true, parent: w);

// a histogram of the values

c.histo(500).plot(bounds: Rect(10, 410, 520, 380), parent: w);

)

(

var a;

a = Pbrown(0.0, 1.0, 0.2, inf);

a.asStream.nextN(1000).plot;

)

// sound example

(

SynthDef(\help_sinegrain,

{ arg out=0, freq=440, sustain=0.05;

var env;

env = EnvGen.kr(Env.perc(0.01, sustain, 0.2), doneAction:2);

Out.ar(out, SinOsc.ar(freq, 0, env))

)

(

var a;

a = Pbrown(0.0, 1.0, 0.1, inf).asStream;

{

loop {

Synth(\help_sinegrain, [\freq, a.next * 600 + 300]);

0.02.wait;

}

}.fork;

)

// parallel browninan motions

(

var a, x, f;

a = Pbrown(0.0, 1.0, 0.1, inf);

// 3 parallel motions
