Transport State


I need to get the transport state, but it seems the seventh outlet don’t do anything…
Except in the Global Transport window.

Should I modify the original Global Transport in order to get the state, or is there a way to make this seventh outlet work ?

You need to send a bang in order to have transport object sending its states out the outlets. That’s the reason why it works in Global Transport.

Thanks Emmanuel !
sorry for the stupid question
I always forget transport needs to be banged in order to get the infos…
but do you know why it doesnt output automatically its infos and has to be always linked to a metro ? I guess there is a good reason but I don’t get it.

That way you can query it at whatever speed is appropriate. If you only use transport to get the beat location for instance, there’s no need to bang it faster than 4n for instance.

ah, ok thanks
I also I forgot to add a small non-synchronized delay in order to get the “off” state as indicated in the Global Transport :
