[PD] groove machine how to: keep metro and a loop in sync

Dear list,

happy new year first of all :)

I wanted to ask you about something that should be simple, but might not be that much.

Inspired by a talk on groove by Victor Wooten, I'm working on a patch that plays a wav loop repeatedly (drums) and then cuts the volume on the track for a certain number of beats. The interval gets larger and larger, forcing you to work on your timing and general "groove" feel.

The patch is already working quite OK, but one thing I cannot seem to get completely right is a perfect sync between the beats which cut off the volume of the wav.

I'm using a metro object set to the bpm of the loop and start both concurrently. Maybe this is just much too imprecise for what I'm trying to do..

thank you all!

Cheers from Munich,
