setclock and pipe

    Mar 24 2009 | 1:17 am
    i'm not sure if i understand how setclock and pipe work together
    look at this patch.
    it's my understanding that when you hit the top button, nothing should happen on the bottom button.
    but I see the bottom button flash.
    is this correct?

      Seems to me that there is a problem with the setclock object. I can't get the helpfile to work!

      it appears that pipe does not respect the chosen clock source. Thanks for the report.
      I would highly recommend looking in to using the new timing objects. You might get into transport and timepoints.

      Looks like and old thread but I have a related question. I am making a set of my own objects that participate in the setclock/clock timing scheme. They will function in every way like their normal equivalents except that the "clock" message will be built in. To sync them all, I will send the clock name from the main patch via "send ChooseMasterClock" to a receive object within all of my new patchers. For the moment, I am using pipe, line, metro and makenote. These are all working. I am wondering if there is a list somewhere of all the standard externals that respond to the clock message.
