How to use a counter in max msp

basically i am creating a composition that will last two minutes i am using a toggle to trigger the composition and only using MIDI within max.

i wanted to make a counter so that i can make certain things such as my drums and my piano come in 30 seconds from the start. does anyone know how i can set up the counter to do this?

There are many ways to achieve this, but I think it would be good to refine the problem statement some more. What sort of timing resolution do you need? Would you benefit from a bar/beat approach instead of a clock time approach?

Here’s a patch with tenth of a second resolution, that fires when 30 seconds are hit:

If you aren’t looking for it to refire, you can use delays to fire 30000 ms after the first bang. Avoid counter all together.
