noobie question about timing and sequencing

January 23, 2010 | 10:41 am

Presumed we have a masterphase running at a 4/4 time signature,
We get a count of four steps, but each sequencer has 32 steps and were only using the first four steps of the sequence. What should I have to do to get 32 steps at 4/4?
Do I have to scale the phase again?

every help will be much appreciated!

you may have answered the question yourself, but it would help to see the patch for some detail

ps, the beauty of Max is, there’s no such thing as a noobie (i think)

Oh, there *is.*

Only a newbie would say "there’s no such thing as a noobie" :-)

@Chris
when i meant was, the Max community is (largely) one of the most egalitarian and non-elitist resources there is: we all contribute on an equal basis, with a shared goal. But at last, a clear definition of ‘noobie’, thanks.

I’m enjoying my time as a noob, inspiration is everywhere!

Anyway……….re the original question, if it was me, I would scale the output of phasor~ again ([phasor~ ] > [*~ 32 ] > [trunc~ ]) like you suggested and go from there. As long as you make sure that every 8th step == 1 crotchet/quarter-note of the original tempo it will work fine.
