seq object in -1 mode, tick timing issue
I am working with 4 seq objects, trying to make them playback at their
proper tempos, with no luck.
I set them in "start -1" mode, and then send ticks driven by a MS clock.
The midi files were originally at 103 bpm. They are playing back all
funky at some arbitrary tempo.
I know the reference manual says 48 ticks/second, for proper playback,
but I am NOT getting that.
Does anyone have some suggestions?
I am totally perplexed.
What happens when you simply send the seqs a standard "start 1024" message?
I dont know, but I dont want them to playback from start to finish.
I need them to run in "start -1" mode, which should advance the files
1/48 of a beat per tick.
I’ll try it anyways when I get home.
I can’t really help but I can confirm the seq problems on windows. A while
back I was syncing seq with a host running at 115bpm. After lots of tweaking
around it turned out that I had to set seq at about 113 to get it sync. This
was for short midifiles though. I also remember trying to sync it using
midiclock, but that didn’t work out. Can’t remember why.
If tight timing is important, I think seq~ might be the only solution. You
can record your midifiles into seq~ from cubase or something, and save em as
text for later seq~ recall. You could even write a simple pluggo that
records tracks to seq~.
good luck, Thijs
Well Im on a mac, and the seq object DEFINETLY isnt acting properly. It is
the ONLY weak link in my patch, and Im not sure how else to do this. I cant
go about recording 4 6 minute long midi tracks, every time I open the
Any otehr ideas? I’ll do the seq~ if I have to, but Im not gonna like it…
Are you using a metro 20.83334 to send the "tick" message? Did you check the basic playback speed with a start 1024?

You don’t have to. Seq~ reads text files, so you only have to convert your
midi once, if you keep using the same midi sequence ofcourse.
Is this working ok in 5.1.8?
The start -1 / tick messages do work OK.
