i have a sub-patch where an integer comes in which is either >0 or 0 that starts a metro object.
now the problem is that there is a delay between starting this object with a >0 integer and the metro to actually start.
i hooked up number boxes and bangs to everything between the metro and the source of the integers and i can clearly see that the integer is going into the metro object at the right time but it takes a variable amount of time for the metro to start (somewhere between 10 to 2000 ms). the delay gets bigger over time.
the strange thing about all this is that when i stop and start DSP the delay time goes back to almost nothing and grows over time again.
i know it's hard to say anything without seeing a patch but the problem is part of a quite very large patch and it would take a lot of time to make this patch working without my HI and midi controllers.
i was hoping this sounds familiar to anyone or to get some tips were to search for the problem.
