Like Metro, But With Better Timing?

November 11, 2006 | 2:00 am

(There was an error on upload and it got posted twice. Sorry.)

Hi,

I’m looking for an object, or a way to build one, that acts just like metro but has better timing. I’m finding metro to be unreliable. I’m using it to trigger midi-on notes so the timing is important. I’ve seen clocks built using phasors~ and snapshots~ to build counters that go to 100, etc, but really all I need is an object that can output bangs every n-miliseconds. Is there anything like that already, or is there an easy way to build one?

Thanks!

Ben

Hello,

I don’t think it’s possible with the current Max scheduler (or maybe using a
software vector size of 1 sample or such and "scheduler in audio interrupt" ? I
haven’t tried it)

You should try phasor~ with edge~ (not snapshot~) or something like this (delta~
is also useful maybe)

But for triggering MIDI out notes, it looks like too much (?)

To paraphrase John Cage…
Had you seen Eric Lyon present his paper at ICMC today, I doubt you
would have asked that question.

Anyway, he’s got a solution that is a few weeks from release. Very
cool stuff.

thanks.

i’ll check out phasor~ and edge~.
i’ll see if i can make sense of it.

thanks!!

Collection of externals for Max/MSP or PD.

the abstract…
"A syetem of externals for Pd and Max/MSP is described that uses
click triggers for sample-accurate timing. These externals
interoperate and can also be used to control existing Pd and Max/MSP
externals that are not sample-accurate through conversion from clicks
to bangs."

Basically the sample trigger is a click analogous to what [train~]
outputs instead of a bang. It’s pretty sweet.
