sync LFO with rewire

Oct 13 2009 | 1:19 pm

I want to use digital performer to sync lfo in max using hostsync~. I’m certainly doing something wrong because in the end my sine wave look more square than sine !

If somebody could help me.

I’m doing some tests with DP and Max thru Rewire right now, so your post arrived at the right time for me Wink

The sine wave looks like a sine wave for me, so I cannot really help.

Here are just a few comments:

Why don’t you simply use [hostphasor~]?
In your [p rewire], you should abstract 48000 and use [adstatus sr] output’s instead.
Did you know you can send the "clocksource rewire" message to [transport] rather than sending [hostsync~]’s output ? That’s what I’m currently testing (with strange results, BTW).

Good luck…

Thanks Patrick, the "clocksource rewire" message resolved the problem !

I have strange behaviours too.
DP and Max are not completely in sync. There’s some ticks differences but i can live with that.
And when I start the song not from the begining, max totally lose the sync. That’s a problem. But I don’t know if it’s DP’s or max’s.

I don’t think it’s DP.

I’m testing time signature changes. If you start DP in the middle, Max (but any other rewire client I tried) will compute the bar number with the current signature…
Changes from 4/4 to 3/8 will also introduce some differences.

I need to check all this a bit deeper, but don’t have time now.

My project is to send the bar|beat position from DP to Max thru Rewire, but couldn’t find any perfectly working solution yet – the [hostsync~] way didn’t work better so far…
