Example One Shot Timer

Ever wanted to automate a widget? Here’s a scriptlet that makes it easy to do this with very little effort on your part. Attached is a gig containing the scriptlet demonstrating its use. Once you’ve tried it, right-click on the One Shot Timer and save it as a GP Preset and then you can use it as often as you want in your own rackspaces.

The scriptlet has a timer that you can trigger via a parameter called, Trigger
When you trigger the scriptlet, the parameter called CurrentValue will go from 0.0 to 1.0 and the time it takes to do that is defined by another parameter simply called Time
You can see these parameters in the plugin editor for the scriptlet.
If you map a widget to the CurrentValue parameter, the widget will move as the parameter changes.

But, you ask, you can only map one parameter to a widget so how do you control some plugin parameter, such as the gain control shown in this example?

Well, simply group the widget mapped to the CurrentValue parameter with another widget mapped to whatever plugin parameter you want to control. You can of course adjust the scaling curve to control how the parameter should actually change over the time period.
