There a 1000 questions, e.g. clocksource and the transport object ... but 1st things 1st.
i am working on a little sequencer to control a hardware synth module. For internal timing and metro control i use the transport object.
Next thing is to sync the sequencer to a daw. i use the sync object to calculate the bpm and let an internal metro do the rest.
Transport control is via the rtin object.
If i look at the midi data in a daw my max sequencer spits out, it is really out of sync.
I thought maybe the best way for synchronization is to use the rtin object and use the midi message 248. Here i encountered that the counter object is doing a really bad job when it comes to good timing. Maybe it is not a good idea to use the counter object for sequencing purposes.
Here is an example patch about using MIDI message 248 with a modulo object and with a counter object. Open a daw, make the midi setup that the patch recieves the transport and clock messages and the daw the midi notes the patch spits out ...
What is your expierence with timing and synchronisation? What should i use?
