My problem is I cannot seem to be able to sync multiple instances of Eric Lyon's el.mask~ object by having one as a master click triggering index numbers. I could not find any documentation about this but only Eric Lyon's "A Sample Accurate Triggering System for Pd and Max/MSP" paper:
"It is also possible for two mask patterns of the same size to be out of sync with each other if, for example, one mask was created later in the design of a given patch. This loss of sync is usually not desirable. Thus, mask provides an option whereby the input is interpreted not as triggers, but rather as index numbers used to iterate through the mask pattern. Using the same indexing clicks
(generated from another mask of course) guarantees that all patterns so controlled remain locked in phase."
Any suggestions welcome
