ok,
i know metro and i use it but how to make it regular?
for example when i play it slow down, it is influenced by what i am doing!!!!

here is the patch :

make sure max is in overdrive, but more important is to drive the play with a phasor (or some other appropriate signal)– that will ensure sample-accurate playback.

ok, it’s better here is my new patch
it’s stable but as you can see i multiply the output signal from phrasor to go in the play (i don’t know why, perhaps it’s the speed)
but i have 2 sound the first one is multiply by 800 and the second by 4000 if i want the real sound (or nearest possible)
can you tell me why?

Hi
if your question is “why does the [phasor~] signal need multiplied by differing amounts in order to drive [play~]” then the answer is simple. The [phasor~] is outputting a ramp from 0. – 1., [play~] expects a signal representing millisecond playback, therefore the ‘raw’ (0-1) signal from phasor would only play the first millisecond of any file. Multiply the ramp by 500 and you will hear the first 500ms of a file.

Divide 1000(ms) by the length of your file (in ms) to give an appropriate frequency value for the phasor:

yes, but i don’t want to modify the frequence because it’s for a metronome….

have a look at this thread– it has various solutions to having a constant-gradient ramp with interruption, ie variable interonset time, which is what you need.
