dividing up midi beat clock info

February 3, 2011 | 7:58 pm

I am using midi beat clock (MBC) information in a patch, and would like to generate bangs based off of these MBC pulses. I would like for these bangs to be at not just quarter note intervals as MBC delivers them, but at 1/8th note, 1/16th note, 1/32nd note, as well as whole and 1/2 note as well.

The patch below works fine, however I "lose" the first one to two beats, because it takes time (I think?) for the sync~ object to start its ramp, based on it learning what the tempo of the incoming MBC info is.

Does anyone have a workaround I might try, so that I don’t lose the first 1 or 2 beats?

You can get the different intervals directly from MBC with a counter.

Excellent, thanks broc!! You’ve been coming to my rescue quite a bit recently! :-)
