Record MIDI, begin playing recording while still recording

    The scenario: I want to start recording MIDI, then hit play and begin playing back the beginning of the MIDI recording while not interrupting that recording process.
    I started off with [seq] which is very handy except if you start playing your recording it stops recording any subsequent events.
    I've thought about recording into a [buffer~} but that seems messy.
    I've been trying out [mtr] but the only way I've though of doing it with that object is by setting a length, setting it to play @loop 1, then using the "addevent" messages to write at certain times, but I don't think you can get the current playhead position of the [mtr] object.
    thanks for your thoughts

      Chris Muir made a sequencer called CollSeq that stores note data from [borax] into a [coll]. I haven't tried it, but since it's based on a [coll] I'm suspecting it might be able to do what you want, even if it takes some tweaking...? http://www.xfade.com/max/examples/
