Clock Sync Strategy for special kind of step sequencer // link working now
Oct 01 2020 | 10:20 pm
i had an idea for a special step sequencer and face problems to implement the clock sync. I'd kindly ask you to switch over to my blog where i described the problem with better formating available than here.
EDIT: This link is working https://karlchenscoderdasein.blogspot.com/2020/10/oddy-sequencer-maxforlive-device.html I hope my problem is clearly defined. Can you define how such a strategy for syncing the clock could work? Please be sure to read the post carefully, the problem is not syncing the clock in a common step sequencer concept, but the problem is caused by the requirements "switch patternfragment immediately" and "disable pattern sync" and "support tripplets and dotted notes".
Maybe the problem is some kind of academic, because i think for a quite long runtime the timers and the sync will be adequate and there still is the pattern sync which will force sync frequently, just for musical reasons. But i wanna do it perfect, so the sequencer should sync to the master clock frequently to avoid inacuracy caused by the subtimers and the delay when starting the msp-delay caused by the runtime of the sequencer. The problem is how to find the points when the step sequencer can sync to master clock without breaking definition of the sequences. Thanks a lot in advance.
