Elementary groove problem


    Oct 19 2006 | 2:52 pm
    In the simple patch below, I can't understand why groove starts
    immediately I turn the audio on, even with an empty buffer!
    I'm sure I'll be feeling daft in a few minutes!

      sig~ does determine the speed...but with a 1. typed into the sig~ as
      the 'initial signal value' argument it starts sending signal
      immediately which in turn starts driving the groove~ object
      immediately...
      from sig~.help file:
      Optional argument is initial signal value (default 0).
      so just leave it [sig~] without the argument typed in and you should
      be good to go...
