Hello everyone,

I've created a few Processing apps for sequencing, like glitch-sequencer and quotile-sequencer, but one problem with Process (and Java in general) is the difficulty of accurate timing. At the latest PygameSF meeting, a gentleman suggested that I use ChucK as a clock source. ChucK supposedly has very accurate timing. That made me start to think....

Wouldn't it be cool to have a simple program who's sole purpose is to generate timing pulses (like MIDI) but using OSC messages? It would broadcast out the timing messages and any OSC equipped sequencer could slave it it. The message itself could include a pulse counter (1..2..3..etc) to help synchronize sequencers and allow software to recover if an OSC message was somehow missed. The program could have a very simple GUI for selecting BPM and for basic transport functions: Play, Stop, Continue, Reset.

If anyone would like to create this, it'd be awesome!

- Bret

i'm afraid I am really not that experienced (and i don't know anything about osc..) but this sounds like something that would be extremely simple with ChucK.

Hey there, I was the guy who suggested doing timing pulses in ChucK at pygameSF. That's a really cool idea to make a dirt simple GUI for it. It's super simple in ChucK, basically just a tweak of the OSC tutorial.
