Closed for Company Meetings: Between September 18 (5pm PDT) and September 22 (12pm PDT), Support and Sales requests will be delayed. Only time-sensitive issues will be addressed during that time. Thanks for your patience.
1) the [counter] resets with a bang at the 4th inlet and the [clocker] when banged, also restarts to zero.
2) if you want the value to be stored the moment the patch is closed, you should check the [closebang] object.
Also, the way you use the [clocker] in the attached patcher, maybe the [metro] object would be more suitable!
