Plot an exponential curve

This patch allows you to see the effect of different exponents in a formula that maps input values to output values with a power function. Input values between 0 and 1, taken to some power, will always yield output values from 0 to 1, provided that the exponent is greater than or equal to 0. (When the exponent is 0, the output values will all be 1.

Exponential mapping

A linear fade-in or fade-out of audio is okay for quick changes that take place in a fraction of a second, but for slower fades one should generally take into account that our subjective sense of loudness more closely conforms to an exponential change in amplitude. This patch allows you to use the slider (or the mod wheel from a MIDI controller) to control the amplitude of white noise in one of three different ways: with straight linear mapping, exponentially (with an exponent of 4), or using a range of 60 decibels.
