You probably noticed that pins have different colors.
The pin’s color indicates the type of data that this pin is compatible with. Green pins can take and return numerical values. Blue pins work with pulses, a special data type that we will return to later.
Let’s try to do some math.
As you can guess, the
multiply node transfers the result of the multiplication
of the numbers from the input pins (
IN2) to the output pin.
xod/core, you will find nodes for different mathematical and trigonometric
calculations. Along with the
multiply node, you will find
divide for very basic computations.
multiplyor another math node to the patch.
Turn the potentiometer knob. If you have followed the example. The LED on port
11 will reach the maximum brightness with a half-turn of the knob. This happens
multiply node multiplied the input values and transferred them to
OUT pin. As
IN2 was set to 2 in the Inspector, the value of the
node doubles before reaching the
LUM pin of LED2.
