i want to have an envelope triggered by Live's transport, every 1 beat for example.
initially i tried using the current_song_time property through an observer, but the envelope seems to be delayed and not consistent.
i read in various threads that plugsync~ or plugphasor~ was intended for such purposes, but still the triggering is delayed by a varying number of samples from beat to beat.
i tried the "current beat count" outlet first, and then the raw ticks output, as suggested in some forum posts.
i read somewhere that "plugsync~ sends all data continuously at intervals of 64 samples, ie. about 1.5ms."
anyone know if this is true? if it is, then that may be the cause of the inconsistencies.
i thought to try the "sample count" outlet, in case it's more accurate, but it keeps running even when playback is OFF, so not any use for syncing.
finally the plugphasor~ object! it outputs at signal rate! but still.. inaccurate, and inconsistent.
i don't know what else to try. anybody had any luck with this?
