Random selection of time values that always equal x bars


    Aug 13 2017 | 3:54 am
    Does anyone have any idea or know any abstractions that will choose a selection of time values that will always add up to 2 bars? I thought I came close by adding different tick values between 32nd to whole notes, but it's rarely exact most of the time; a crap shoot.
    To simplify the idea, let's say you can randomly choose between 1/16th,1/8th, and 1/4th notes, but they have to add up exactly to 2 bars every time. I'd like to go through a 2 bar sequence and randomize the speed of the playhead.

      ! Thanks! Never would've thought of thresh. I'm in a bit of a burn-out period so even though all the ways the cat can be skinned my mind is in a small box and I've never used thresh anyway. Excellent! So it turns out the remainder is not always a timevalue but alas! I have a workaround:
      when the remainder goes in to translate ticks to timevalues, if it isn't a time value it gives a 0.
      Can I send you some beer or something? I really appreciate it.
