    Hi all!
    just starting to try and figure this stuff out, im totally clueless.
    trying to create an arpeggiator with "tempo" but when i play with the "division of whole note" the change only starts when it finishes its cycle. unlike the ableton arpeggiator, it is not instant. for example: if the note repeats 1/1 (bar) and i switch it in the middle of the bar to a 1/6, it will only change to the new value when it finished counting the 1/1.
    is there a way to make have it effect it instantly? or should i use "metro" or something else instead?
    thank youuuuu!!!!!

      Here's something that might help. Use tempo to generate small intervals and then use [% ] of some larger value n, you can make a trigger occur every nth time there is an output from tempo.
      Max Patcher
      In Max, select New From Clipboard.
      This patch needs modification to if you want long durations to trigger immediately (e.g. 1/1 will not trigger till the start of the next bar line).
