hi, I have a very simple (metro 200) connected to a button and am flashing it, it appears on the screen to be flashing smoothly by itself.
when i take this simple metro and button into a heavy patch, and view it on the screen, at times when the patch is being used, the button flashes in a gittery way and glitches, similar to the effect when one saves a project whilst looking at a flashing button/led. it kinda pauses and then eventually gathers pace and returns to normal.
I wonder is there a way to prioritise the metro and button to overcome this? Or maybe a metro is not the best thing to use?
thanks for any ideas

thank you for your reply. I didn’t realise how much processing it took to flash an led/button on screen.
The flashing signal is to be routed to an arduino, then to a control panel. its only flashing so the eye can spot it quickly. when the user pushes the button, the led remains on.
I shall look into the LCD object it looks very interesting .
I think i can make my patch more efficient also,. as its becoming a mess . a tidy up should help. : )
Thanks again : )
