[PD] drum pattern sequencing

I usually use textfile and metro for sequencing, and just track the
sequences with a text editor.  That way, each line in the file can
represent one tick with an arbitrary set of parameters.  I've found that
timing is more precise this way than when using a separate MIDI
sequencer (I guess because Pd rounds the metro interval to an integer
number of blocks..?).
