[bug] groove~ out of sync in m4l

    I've noticed a sync problem in m4l with the groove~ object. It's easy to reproduce if you record the output of groove~ into a live track. After a while (>3min) it gets totally out of sync and after a 20 minutes the loop will be displaced for more then 1 beat.
    Steps to reproduce:
    - load the attached test file into live - record the output into a track for more then 3 minutes - compare first bars of the file with the last bars

      You can't rely on Live's transport and groove~'s internal timing to keep in sync this way. You'll need to use a transport synced ramp or something to drive your audio playback.

      So there's no way to sync groove~ properly in m4l, right? It would be nice to have a sync inlet for groove~. I will take a look at play~ instead. Sorry for the noise.
      Thanks Andrew.

      Yeah, wave~ or play~ are cool. Maybe you could get a away with retriggering groove at the start of each cycle, in conjunction with a kind of grooveduck sort of thing.
