To your iPhone %cpu question: I’m seeing just over 20-40% on iPhone 6s running IOS 12.

D1 has a lower 15-30% signature.

Cheers.

Sweet! Thanks!

Sub Sequencer

Hold Seq - Sub Seq v001

  • two different counts

I’d be interested to see how other people have changed or added anything to these. Please post your patches.

Also, welcome to hear of any bugs or ideas you guys ‘n gals have. Cheers!

Bugs I know of:

  • some things don’t retrigger if the gate is above 0.96

That’s a real beast :cowboy_hat_face:

Arg… Clocks not syncing with plugins… Imagined they were for a sec there… May have to re-do the sequencer to work with negative starting clocks… Nuts.


#13

Sadly, you have exceeded my CPU :slightly_frowning_face: The perfect opportunity to upgrade from this 2009 imac perhaps :slight_smile:


#14

I’ve been feeling the age of my 2010 Mac as well. The wake up call for me is that I can’t update to Mojave.


#15

It starts breaking up on me when dialogue/input boxes appear on my iPad Pro as well. Give me a sec I’ll make a trimmed down version.


#16

Hold Seq v015h

  • trimmed down example
  • minor demo cleanup

Even the guts are elegant


#18

Great - you were really able to bring the load down. Works nicely now!
