I want to program a show in MaxMSP from about 3 minutes. I have to control several things and their timing has to be exact. I'm now using the "fucntion" object for this. If the show is 3 minutes (180000 ms) it not easy to program. (there is no grid on the timeline, only if I click a point I can see it's values). It's also handy if I could see at what point in time the show is. Here is a patch which I made but I'm not very satisfied about it.
Is there a better way to do it?
