Dear users of the community, i have found an old post about a very bad design of max transport and an erroneous use of BMP concept.
I am not into polemical speech but i simply want to do a 6/8 piece that, like 99% of music in history has 2 BEATS and every beat should be a DOTTED QUARTER NOTE.
Who ever has taught that a BEAT IS A QUARTER? how can we tell to MAX that my chosen tempo, let's say 66BPM should be related to the true metrical division (dotted quarter) instead of a purely abstract and musically irrilevant quarter note?
is there any good way to deal with this? Would have been to complicate like in serious music tools (like protools) to specify a tempo in BPM and a rythmical unit? (like 120 dotted quarter, or 120 eight note..etc)
THIS HAS BEEN THE USE FOR THREE CENTURIES AND WORKS REALLY FINE before some smar people probably thought that everybody must BECOME 4/4 120BMP LOOP-MINDED.
another question, and thanks for support. why even if i do a rewind i cannot update the time signature of master transport via a timesig command in the patcher (the extras window of global transport don't get updated)
