problems with metro

December 9, 2009 | 6:45 pm

Hi,

what attributes should I write on the metro to sync with Live transport.

I have written "metro @autostart 1 @autostarttime 0" to respond immediately to Live.
Im also sending tempo information out of the middle live.menu outlet (item symbol) 8nt 32nd etc

Depends what you want to do but

metro 16n @quantize 16n @active 1

Is always a good place to start.

"@autostart 1 @autostarttime 0" is like you have a timepoint at 0 ticks which is telling the metro to start playing once it goes past there, but it won’t necessarily stay on if you start Live’s transport from another location. @active takes care of that.
