Question about plugsync~

I am learning Max/M4L and my first project is building a sequencer. I am trying to use plugsync~ to start and stop metro which is not working as expected. According to the docs, the left outlet sends a 0 or 1 depending on the state of the host transport but it almost seems to be sending continuous values and constantly restarting metro. Am I not understanding plugsync~ correctly?

In fact, plugsync~ sends all data continuously at intervals of 64 samples, ie. about 1.5ms. If you want to observe value changes only just insert a [change] object.

Is there a way to use that output to stop/start metro?

Ahh, the answer was the change object. I put it between plugsync and metro and its doing what I want. Thanks!
