Automating Control of the Dac On/Off over large periods of time

    Wondering what suggestions people might have for an automated timer switch to control when the patch would play audio over a 24hr period?
    Say to switch on/off every 12hrs Keen to hear any control methods methods, if there's some optimised way to do this

      You can use [clocker] to keep track of the time elapsed since you activated the patch, or [date] to poll the system clock if you want events to happen at a specific time. You can set either of them to a very long interval, say 1 hour, so they shouldn't interfere with the efficency of your patch:

      Perfect, had no idea about the date object.
