## 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...
