(a > b ? v1 : v2) (a < b ? v1 : v2) (a >= b ? v1 : v2) (a <= b ? v1 : v2) (a == b ? v1 : v2) (a != b ? v1 : v2)
where a, b, v1 and v2 may be expressions, but a, b not audio-rate.
In the above conditionals, a and b are first compared. If the indicated relation is true (a greater than b, a less than b, a greater than or equal to b, a less than or equal to b, a equal to b, a not equal to b), then the conditional expression has the value of v1; if the relation is false, the expression has the value of v2. (For convenience, a sole "=" will function as "= =".)
NB.: If v1 or v2 are expressions, these will be evaluated before the conditional is determined.
In terms of binding strength, all conditional operators (i.e. the relational operators (<, etc.), and ?, and : ) are weaker than the arithmetic and logical operators (+, -, *, /, & and ||).
These are operators not opcodes. Therefore, they can be used within orchestra statements, but do not form complete statements themselves.
k2 = (k1 < p5/2 + p6 ? k1 : p7)
binds the terms p5/2 and p6. It will return the value k1 below this threshold, else the value p7.
