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.
