sync~ to counter

April 29, 2011 | 12:44 am

Hello,
I’d like to sync up my step ring modulator to a midi sync, so it can be synced from the timing from live.. currently i have all my workings with a counter, so if possible i’d like to leave that in place and replace the metro that drove the counter with sync~ controlling the counter (or even sync controlling metro and leave metro controlling sync) … having trouble figuring that out… if anyones done that before, i’d be stoaked to know how..

thanks
bryan

You can control sync~ with external MIDI clock received from [rtin].
When running the right outlet sends 24 ticks per beat (represented as 248}.
Here is a test patch that triggers a button on every beat.

hey broc, thanks for the patch.

i started looking at the max4live tutorials, and found the transport object to give bpm and metro 4n @quantize 4n @autostart 1 @autostarttime 0 to get the beat.
The weird thing is, i put the sync button and the transport button next to eachother, and the sync is a little off from the transport. transport seams to be right no abletons click, but not the sync~, but sync does react to lives tempo changes, so it is being controlled from live, but theres some latency. Is that normal?

Transport will work great, and idealy i’d like to have both options if i can midi sync to sync correctly. but i would also like to be to change 4n to 8n or 2n, or whatever the beat is in the time signature, i know how to abstract the time signature from transport, but i’m not sure how to send a new time signature to metro, so it would click on 8th beats if the timing was x/8.

thanks again
bryan
