Thanks it worked (about the RTC-lib)!

I have another question about your ioi-sequencer (very nice indeed!),
my problem is that I would like to have a possibility to move forward
(or backward) in time, especially if I give as messages value as [1.6(
and [1.7(  respectively: with the sequence you put, is quite easy to
calculate when the pattern obtained is going to repeat, and then work
with it compositionally. But with the "phasing" value that I want to
use, the whole created pattern  is very long in time, and I still
would like to have a precise control into it.
What I really like in your example is the possibility to send messages
of any length on the fly, but how could I then have a master tempo
counter (if it is what it is required) and still have this

Some suggestions?

The RTC-library is not a compiled library like Gem, but a collection
of Pd patches. So you just add the "rtc" directory to your Pd path and
that's it. Try to create a "RTC-Overview" object for the overview.
Several objects are still missing, but most objects should create and
