      if I remember well, negative steps size remove step size of 0. Is it what you want ?

      nice one,
      -2 seems to do the trick.
      cheers buddy.

      A caveat...
      Although I intended to make my Dronk object behave exactly like drunk, it does not respond correctly to negative steps. I'll try to fix this ASAP but I can't guarantee when I can get to it. I have a couple of ideas for a work around that I'll post in a sample patch soon.

      Dronk workaround to avoid immediate repetitions. The del 1 following an interval of 0 is a "try again" kludge without producing an infinite loop. BTW, I recommend a close look at del. It is an innocent-looking but powerful little object. I use it a lot to tell me that nothing has happened - for example when a markov chain has found a deadend and failed to produce an output.

      See my post on this. The issue is (or may be) that we may always want and output. If drunk (or Dronk) is being used to generate notes and trigger rhythms, change will introduce a gap in time. In my workaround, I illustrated a "try again" method.
