[bug] groove~ out of sync in m4l

I’ve noticed a sync problem in m4l with the groove~ object. It’s easy to reproduce if you record the output of groove~ into a live track. After a while (>3min) it gets totally out of sync and after a 20 minutes the loop will be displaced for more then 1 beat.

Steps to reproduce:

- load the attached test file into live
- record the output into a track for more then 3 minutes
- compare first bars of the file with the last bars

You can’t rely on Live’s transport and groove~’s internal timing to keep in sync this way. You’ll need to use a transport synced ramp or something to drive your audio playback.

So there’s no way to sync groove~ properly in m4l, right? It would be nice to have a sync inlet for groove~.
I will take a look at play~ instead. Sorry for the noise.

Thanks Andrew.

Yeah, wave~ or play~ are cool. Maybe you could get a away with retriggering groove at the start of each cycle, in conjunction with a kind of grooveduck sort of thing.
