I didn't look to closely into your patch, but I saw that you use the
adsr abstraction in it which in turn uses the [del] objects. Those del
objects never delay below 64 samples (and thus are acutally a "pain in
derriere" for fast, perkussive envelopes) 

You might want to try your test patch with a phasor~ instead, whose
phase is reset evertime the metro is on.
