Actually it's Frank and Eric. :) The thread still sums up what's important
here: It's not necessary to use Eric's objects in Pd. They may be useful in
Max/MSP and they provide some nice functionality besides accuracy, but the
accuracy you get with vline~ and Pd's clock objects (metro, delay, etc.)
already is subsample-exact, so it's fine for many cases and as good as what you
get with [samm~] and relatives. Just use [metro].
