Global transport control of "seq"…

October 1, 2008 | 4:18 pm

Does anyone know of a way I can have [seq] use the global
transport timing so that it will react to tempo changes?

The help file and the refpages both point out
that you can only set the tempo of the seq
object when you start it, so I would think that
it would be best to use something else.

The seq~ object runs off of a phasor~ and you
can certainly lock said phasor~ to run with
the Global Transport or any other named transport
in ITMland. I would think that’s a better choice.

[our mutual friend Chris Muir reminds me that I
would be well advised to mention that when I
use the acronym ITM, I'm referring to the ability
to synchronize various Max/MSP objects by
specifying time in "musical" ways. My recent
sequence on creating time-synced LFOs is an
example of this. As much as I generally dislike
acronyms, you'd think I'd be more wary of them
myself]

Actually, I want to be able to change the tempo
while it is playing. seq allows you to specify
the tempo it plays back at, but you can not
change it once you have started.

Seq~ might be what I want, I will look into it.
