Beats


    Nov 17 2011 | 3:10 pm
    I am triggering middi notes in my project for looking a different ways of generative music but one thing i am having trouble with is how to i get tempo or another object to play different beats like quavers, crotchets, semi quavers and so on

      have a look at the [metro] object combined with the use of [transport] or global transport in the extras menu.
