Kineme Audio Input

Kineme Audio Input - Waveform output

G'Day everyone

I've just started on audio analysis in quartz composer.

Using the Kineme Audio Input patch from the Audio Tools plugin, i've noticed that the waveform output has a lot of data (waveformlets?), 512 it seems.

My questions is; what is the best way to simplify this down to just 3 values, high mid, low. Suppose I could also break them into 9 or 27 values. But 512, just seems a little overkill for what I need.

Is there a best way to do this? Any gotcha's I need to worry about? Would a few Javascript patchs do?

Is the accuracy of each of the frequencies equal, I remember reading a while back that the lower and higher values are not really accurate or usable. Although that could of been about another patch.

Also, what is the Frequency Mode? I change it but nothing seems to happen. I'm pretty new to audio, so i'm probably asking really basic questions but we all have to start somewhere :)

Thanks for the patch though, I'm already making use of the volume peaks.
