Using the metro object

the metro object is used for timing and clock-based synchronization in a Max patch. The interval of output can either be fixed or tempo-relative, using the global or a named transport object.

  • To ensure tight timing and synchronization, turn on Overdrive. This can be found in the 'Options' menu. Overdrive is a scheduler mode that runs timing objects in a high-priority thread, resulting in more accuracy and less interference from other computer tasks.

  • Changing a metro's interval of output only becomes active after the previously set interval has completed. To set the interval and use it immediately, be sure to send a '1' or 'active 1' to the metro object's leftmost inlet just after setting the time interval.
