search way to get lists from X*n

Hi All

I’m excusing for creating another topic ..

I want to create lists with different amounts- from a list with y elements.
I made a sketch so its more clear to understand (sc)

theres a list with y amount of numbers
then in first list I want X numbers in this sketch its 7
then in second list I want 7*2 numbers but the first 7 should be the same and only added 7 new
then in third list I want 7*3 numbers -> the first 14 (7*2) should be the same and agin it should add 7 new
and so on..

in this example till 7*5

I think its possible with loop but I don’t get it how to make it .. 😀 and in wich mode should the random function be?

hope for s.b. its intelligible :)

Thanks a lot <3

Hi Lena,

Your explanation is not very clear but i think i understand your problem.
First :
you don’t need the repeat-n to multiply an atom (number here) with a list. om* will do just fine.

Second :
when using random (here nth-random) with multiple outputs connected to it and you need it to be one result each evaluation, you just have to put your nth-random in eval-once mode by selecting it, typing b and clicking one time on the cross which will become a “1” symbol.

If you need an example, please do send your patch i will fix it for you.

Dear Karim

thanks for reply! :)

-to first ..I think I need that n-repeat because of the source the nth-random is drawing, but you couldn’t know its not in screenshot..

-to second: in 1-mode he is only taking one atom and putting it 7 times in list but I want 7 severals in one list;
and then the list step by step expand by 7 keeping the previous lists of 7 atoms and add a list of 7 atoms..

maybe its more clear if you see the patch..
would be magnificent if you could fix it :)

thanks a lot!

Ok, i think i begin to understand.

However, still, do you need repeated elemts sometime or the list should be as in the original without repeated elmts ?

.. I don’t know, sorry 😀

could you make an example, please?
But in case I don’t know what you mean I think I don’t need repeated elements at the moment..
