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
