Elementary groove problem

    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! Gorwel

      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...
