[ANSWERED] make Toggle Actor default to 'off' after being triggered 'on'..?
I'm sure this is a really dumb question, but i can't figure it out, and I can't even describe it very well. Here goes:
I want to use a peak signal (in this case sound, but that's not important) to trigger an 'on' from the Toggle Actor, and for that to be immediately switched off once that signal has diminished. At the moment the peak signal triggers alternately 'on', then 'off'.
How can I get the Toggle to revert to an 'off' setting by default, ready to receive the trigger for 'on' once more?
Am I using the wrong Actor? I feel like the solution is staring me in the face, but I can't see it.

Depending on what you want to do, there are probably other solutions, but try this one first.
thanks I very much appreciate the fast reply, but i can't make sense of your solution for my problem at the moment, so i will use an invented example to represent it:
in this simple example a trigger value of 9.7 in the left channel of the Sound Level Watcher triggers the Toggle to 'on', bypassing the Difference Actor. But the next time the trigger level is reached it will trigger an 'off', having the opposite outcome.
What I want is for the trig level value 9.7 value to trigger 'on' every time, and for the bypass to return to 'off' by default when there is no trigger arriving at the Toggle Actor.

great. thanks very much. I have never used that Actor before! It provides exactly the kind of one-hit timed switch that I'm looking for. And it's a very simple solution too, which i like :-)
Maybe I am wrong, but it seems to me you want to use the either the Sound Level Watcher or the Sound Frequency bands actors, so that you can see the output readings.
Once you have these reading you can use a Comparator to check if the value is Greater Than a threshold value.
That gets you what you asked for, I believe.
I also added using my Value Decay actor as a way to slow the decay. It may provide an extra level of control for you.

But really the Comparator will give you the within range (above/below a threshold) that you asked for.
thanks! at the moment the quick-and-dirty way with the Pulse Value actor suits my way of working, but when i want a more precise audio response this will be useful.
