I understand that control rate events may not align consistently with audio rate events, but for a given control rate event with no explicit intervening delays, can I assume that all the processing and audio side-effects of that event will occur at the same point in the audio stream? For example, suppose a bang causes a [phasor~] to reset its phase to zero, changes that [phasor~]'s frequency, and updates the multiplier of a downstream [*~]. Would all three occur at the same sample? What if the bang was sequenced by a [trigger]?
control rate/audio rate alignment
@jameslo The whole chain has to complete when a control rate event is triggered.
It all happens at the same time in the time between audio ticks but in the order set by any triggers (or the creation order if no trigger was "put".
I cannot explain it better than chapter 2.5 here...... .http://puredata.info/docs/manuals/pd/x2.htm
