seq/mtr — Snapping to first recorded note

    Jan 15 2021 | 5:13 pm
    I'm guessing this is basic, but how can I tell what time position seq or mtr are at when playing back? Couldn't find it in any of the help patches.
    I want to delete empty space at the beginning of my sequences and snap to the start of the first note, then snap the total length to the nearest bar. That way my sequences of note data are equal to whole bar lengths. Anyone know how to do this? I know this is a few questions in one...

      The play position of mtr is given in the info dict. Something like that - the patch might be different if you have just one track, or several tracks, because of the dictionary objects.
      Check out the patches given there, I think they include the report of the playback position:

      That said, if you want to delet empty space, maybe you want to design a kind of auto-start when the first event to record shows up.

      Thanks so much, Jean-Francois! These are awesome resources. I'm struggling with dicts, but they're starting to make sense. :)
