Howto phasor~ drive 16-step sequencer?

    Yes a master phasor sounds like a good idea to drive for example 7 step-sequencers but how do people go about doing this. How to implent "shuffle"?
    This can't be right: [snapshot~ 20] * 7 stepsequencers running - can't be right. Could send a masterclock from the [snapshot] but then you can't use [rate~] independently which is fun for weird timings.
    The question is: how do you make a 16-step sequencer abstraction with a master phasor? I'm new at this.

      Mabe seq~ is what you want?

      Christopher: not looking for Seq~, just a way to drive multiple step sequencers 'n sync (heh...) a la this:
      (This is just an illustration; got a big fat multislider thingy with pattr's etc.)
      It's better to use phasor because of the timing instead of a "sloppy" metro? Still "snapshot"'ing like mad.
      Perhaps i'm looking for some golden way of doing things. [Phasor] [* 16] [snapshot 1.] [fetch $1]. Can't really think of a different way to do this.
      If someone could post an example of syncing 2 or more sequencers in a clever way.

      until now i have never found a reason to go for audio instead of metro, except in an all-audio system.
      using phasor~with snapshot~ is something you should quickly forget about.

      [phasor~]
      [*~ 16] (# of steps)
      [pong~ 1 0. 1.]
      [
      with just four objects you get a pretty decent audio rate sequencer. output of less than object can go to an adsr~ or such to stay in signal, or to an edge~ to let bangs take over. from the phasor~ you get a master clock and from the pong~ a step clock to play around with. put an trunc~ after the [*~ 16] to get a step count which can go to an index~ loaded with whatever controls you'd like (pitch values, envelope triggers). sometimes i put pong~ into a trapezoid~ for envelopes. probably every patch i make start with these ideas.

      Great with pong~ Cudnylon, now i can sequence back and forth.
      Next question: Shuffle!?
      Have tried this with [pibe] or was it [delay] on every 2,4,6,8... and it worked. But how do you shuffle with phasor? Fuck around wite [rate] or what?
      Quick sketch that doesnt work below:

      Here's one way - if you search the forum, I'm sure you'll find others,

      Here's a (very) slightly different way of doing it that shows one way of incorporating % into it.

      Great Peter! This can easily be adapted into a "setup" like this?:
      Some questions inside should you bother... seems to work nicely with snapshot; can't really see a way around it but then again im no mathematician.

      [phasor~]
      [*~ 16] (# of steps)
      [pong~ 1 0. 1.]
      [< ~ 0.5] (gate size)
      using the setup above, what is an ideal approach to creating a dotted repeated output signal, example for 16 steps:

      thanks.

      I tend to use this sort of arrangement:
      I like using phasor~ to drive the system as it can be easily distorted for unusual sequencing patterns...
      It is using phasor~ and snapshot~ though, is there a reason this is not recommended?
