        looks like a nice approach, so I tried it today.
        unfortunately i got the same result as similar things I tried
        before and
        which involve midi sent over alsa or jack to/from pd: poor
        I uploaded this little test file so you can hear what I mean:
        I connected seq24 to pd by selecting the 'midi bus' for the
        I ran pd -jack and qjackctl, but i did not make any midi
        connections in
        qjackctl itself, so I'm not sure if jack even has anything to do
        I did this on ubuntustudio (hardy)
        do you get better results ?

I've never noticed this before because I don't do any super strict/fast
sequencing.  Mainly I'm planning
on using seq24 to create the midi control sequences that are read and
played in pd using the 
midifile object at show time.  Basically I want the flexibility of the
interface for composing as opposed to
my gop toggle/slider sequence objects but with the same playback
directly within pd for live performance.
I do not use seq24 on my wearable, the patches should just read the midi
songfiles to control whatever
is in the patch.

        hi again,
        I did a second test, this time in pure:dyne.
        I took an even simpler pattern and switch between [metro 60] and
        the 32nd
        notes coming from [notein] to make the difference more apparent:

So thats about 166.6 bpm with streams of 32nd notes?  I did the same
test and the seq24 noteons seem to 
"roll".  The devs are working on adding jack midi to seq24 which is
sample accurate so that should help wait
a bit I believe, otherwise jump in and add it.

It seems this is a common problem with alsa-based midi anywho.
