it seems to me that you have put the quarter note at 120 metronome
that means 2 quarter notes every 1 second. so each of the quarter
notes comes every 500 mls.
the timer object measures how much time, after one bang, the
successive bang will come.
That's not a delay between the 2 bangs, but the exact timing of the
i 've been using a lot timer object in this manner:
and the timer is always giving the difference in time between two
successive events, that, in this case, they are the events triggered
by the tempo object.
a low explanation is for me that, when the bangs are simoultaneous,
"timer" consider them as a single bang on the right inlet, always
The high explaination is due to other more expert people...
about the timer object problem,
this object is one those few for which the right-to-left order rule is not valid.
its left inlet is cold: it causes no output but starts or restarts the timer.
and its right is hot: it causes the output of the elapsed time.
