Can you quantise the preset object to the transport?

July 19, 2012 | 3:21 pm

I would like to quantise preset changes to the transport. I tried using pipe, but it appears to only control objects it is directly touching and pipe upsets this. Any one know a way to do it?

Many thanks in advance

I would recommend using a different interface to the preset object, maybe even another preset object, who’s output is held, then triggered by output of a tempo relative metro. Something like this maybe? A brief sketch:

Take a look at the patch from Stretta : http://cycling74.com/practical-max/practical-max-2/

It could give you some ideas.

If I understand you correctly, you want to cause preset changes to occur only on a downbeat (or a beat, or whatever), right? How about this? Just before you want the change to occur, set a timepoint for the next downbeat (or beat, or whatever), and use that to trigger the preset recall.
