i want something very simple but i’m not quite sure of how to do it

basically what i want is a sample to be triggered repeatedly after a specific amount of time

for example every 5.67 seconds id like a sample to be triggered

so it would count 1.00,2.00,3.00.4.00,5.00 upto 5.67 the sample will be triggered and the process repeats continuously until its told to stop

i thought the counter object would do this but it counts in whole numbers

could any advice the best approach to create this

thanks for you time

You can use counter, but a more efficient way would be to use a metro that send out a bang every 5.67 s, or 5670 ms. attach this to your message that triggers the sample. you must have a toggle attached to the metro to activate it.
