autostart with 'clocker' object

June 4, 2012 | 6:57 am

Im trying to set a clocker object to start from a point in time defined by a value of (total time of clips) in beats.
Can anyone please explain why this patch isn’t working?
Thanks :)

But it seems to work for me as expected.
For example setting beat number to 4, the clocker starts when playhead arrives at the 2nd bar.

Ah. I must have mistaken the purpose of this attribute!
It seems that this attribute will autostart when it reaches a current time, however,
What I need is:
When the clocker is reset or turned on it will start from the value defined (x) value in ms.
For anyone who this might help, this is how I set it up:

Adding the start value is ok, but ‘translate’ should be removed since clocker sends ms by default.
Note also that you can set the clocker interval as argument (default is 5 ms).
