Global transport control of "seq"...

    Does anyone know of a way I can have [seq] use the global transport timing so that it will react to tempo changes?

      The help file and the refpages both point out that you can only set the tempo of the seq object when you start it, so I would think that it would be best to use something else.
      The seq~ object runs off of a phasor~ and you can certainly lock said phasor~ to run with the Global Transport or any other named transport in ITMland. I would think that's a better choice.
      [our mutual friend Chris Muir reminds me that I would be well advised to mention that when I use the acronym ITM, I'm referring to the ability to synchronize various Max/MSP objects by specifying time in "musical" ways. My recent sequence on creating time-synced LFOs is an example of this. As much as I generally dislike acronyms, you'd think I'd be more wary of them myself]

      Actually, I want to be able to change the tempo while it is playing. seq allows you to specify the tempo it plays back at, but you can not change it once you have started.
      Seq~ might be what I want, I will look into it.
