in need of @transport attribute

December 8, 2008 | 12:52 am

Any chance phasor~, pipe, and all those other transport-aware objects will support a @transport attribute soon? I’d like to use them with a transport other than the default one.

Yes, but I want to be able to change the tempo. To do that I have to set up all this extra cruft to make sure I store and then retranslate the notevalue whenever the tempo changes. It’s possible but I don’t like it. This is handled for me when I use the default transport, so I’d like it to "just work" with a named transport too.

I have the feeling it’s always been intended that these objects support named transports, but it just hasn’t happened yet due to time constraints. I’m wondering if it might happen sooner rather than later?

If only a few were to be updated at first, I’d vote for line~ and phasor~. Then pipe, delay~, and delay.

Adam,

I fully share that sentiment – pardon my language, but goddammit the
transport system will rock when that’s sorted – you will then be able to
do all manner of trickery by dynamically switching transport affiliations.

I’d settle for phasor~ for starters – we could drive all manner of
things from a transport-switchable phasor~.

Agreed, phasor~ should definitely be a priority.

Now I’m not sure why I asked for line~. Since you have to send a message to line~ to make it do it’s thing, this is the easiest situation to set up a translate w/ a non-default @transport to convert to the correct time in milliseconds, regardless of any tempo changes that may have been happening. For phasor~ it’s much more of a hassle.

Any news about the opportunity to link phasor~ to a different named transport object?

thanks

Sorry to revive this old thread, but I’m concerned with this problem right now, so, does anybody know a way to link a phasor~ to a different transport than the default one ?

Max 6 ?

apparently still not possible :-((

Currently trying to figure this one out. Really want to sync a phasor~ to a named transport. Any ideas how to work this?
