Basic Max transport timesig question

February 2, 2014 | 12:59 am

Hi all,

I’m just learning about the transport object, but something keeps happening that makes me wonder if there’s a bug or whether it’s plain ol’ user error.

I’ve got a [transport], and so I can see what’s going on there’s a number box connected to the 2nd outlet (beats) and a [metro 16n] sending bangs to the left inlet of [transport]. When I change the time signature with messages like "timesig 7 16", "timesig 4 8", etc. the number box displays the appropriate numbers at the appropriate tempo, so it all seems to be OK.

But when I open the global transport it doesn’t display the correct time signature. It displays the correct beats (7, 4, etc. as per my examples) but the units display is stuck on 4, even when it should be 8 or 16

So, bug or user error?

Thanks in advance for any help.
