Time signatures / poly-rhythm

June 9, 2010 | 12:08 pm

I am trying to make a sequencer with poly-rhythm timing. Would anyone be so kind as to give a more efficient example of what I am doing here. There is obvious drift between the metros with this example. Is there any way to do this with syncing to the global transport. Thanks.

@Andrew Pask: I’ll have a look at the transport object in more detail. Thanks.

@zerox_: Thanks. That is a nice method. A good starting point.

@seejayjames: Thanks for the tip on audio rate clocking.

Here is my polyrhythm sequencer patch so far. Any feedback or constructive criticism is welcome. If this can be improved please do advise with any alternative methods (Not the sample players, just the sequencer).

Here it is again as it didn’t upload properly 1st time.

Edit: Well it seems I have nothing but trouble uploading my patches.

Edit 2: Ah, there you go it needs to be in a zip file.
