Plugsync~ tempo

    Feb 16 2006 | 9:28 pm
    what's the number that comes out of the tempo outlet of plugsync~ in logic (presumably a similar number in other apps as well, but all I care about is logic :-)
    here's a table with the number out of plugsync~ on the left, and the bpm in logic on the right ...
    5759.999512 = 500bpm 2399.998047 = 120bpm 576000 = 5bpm 28799.998047 = 100bpm 239999.984375 = 12bpm
    etc ...
    I can't figure out any rhyme or reason for it ...

      Right out of the MSP reference manual, page 308:
      "The current tempo in samples per beat. This number can be converted to beats per minute using the following formula: (sampling-rate / samples-per-beat) * 60. If the host does not support synchronization, there is no output from this outlet."

      bah - i'm an idiot.
      forgetting that all this pluggo stuff is included in the current distro, I was checking a (probably ancient) pluggo dev guide that didn't mention it.
      thanks!! (i feel stupid)
