scale_time_continuous {playitbyr}R Documentation

Continuous scales for note starting times


These shortcut functions (with the notation scale_[sound parameter]_[scaling function]) are intended to be added onto a sonify object to specify how [data parameter] from the data (a column of the data) is to be mapped to sonic parameters (here "time", the starting time of the note in seconds).


  scale_time_continuous(soundlimits, limits = NULL,
    by = NULL, ...)

  scale_time_exp(soundlimits, limits = NULL, by = NULL,



The limits of the data to train, a numeric vector of length 2. All data values outside these limits are returned as NA. If NULL, the default, the function takes the minimum and maximum of the data


The limits of the sound parameter.


The unit to round the sound parameter to.


Other parameters (currently ignored)


_continuous scales are a linear scaling, whereas _exp is an exponential scale.


A sonscaling object, to be used in sonify or added onto a sonify object.
