Strange transport+phasor problem

Hi.

So I have been attempting to expand on the transport-syncing-phasor~
example in the phasor~ help file.

I don’t quite know what to make of this problem, and I’d appreciate your
feedback – it’s regarding how one switches transport which the phasor~
syncs to. I can’t make it budge.

Cheers
a.

Even the phasor~ help file states “bad arguments for message “phasor”. I
guess there is something broken, or you need [translate] to tell phasor~
how to tick…

phasor~ does not currently support being assigned to a transport other than the global one. It’s not really clear from your patch but it seems like you are imagining you can drive a phasor~ with a metro, which is not the case as far as I know.

Ah. That limitation wasn’t quite clear from the documentation, so thanks
a lot for the clarification.

The plan was, originally, to do these tricks with pong~ and rate~, but
those solutions aren’t nearly as solid as tweaking the transport, which
provides a sort of random-access timing system.

I see a LOT of creative potential in allowing a @transport attribute for
phasor and other objects. It would add a lot of flavour to how one can
work with tempo in play~ and so on.

This was more or less a straight copy-paste job, and that sub-patcher
(from the phasor helpfile) is very well the source of my confusion; it
uses a metro to quantize the tempo changes for phasor, but that’s all
you can do, apparently.
