Pre-count for transport

I’m trying to get my transport precount 2 bars before starting recording.
So I thought setting location to -2 1 0. would do the trick, but it looks like transport counts the negative bars with 0, 1. That’s not really good for me because the sfrecord~ starts when receives 1 from the bars count..
Here’s the code:

Thanks in advance!

Couldn’t you offset the whole thing? Start the sfrecord~ with [sel 3]. For display purposes you can subtract 2 from the transport’s bar output.

Thanks Frans-Jan! Sounds like a simple and fast idea. I’ll go try it out..

I finally used another transport, cause the other one had too many things tied to it..The ‘precount’ transport just counts 2 bars and than triggers the main transport.

Thanks again for support
