I am programming generative music and I was wondering about different ways of syncing multiple instruments together. Which one is more accurate?: creating a patch with one metro object, and sending the signal to each instrument to process, or to have each instrument have a metro object of its own, and starting them simultaneously?
I have experienced trouble with a main metro object sending signal to each instrument.. it seems like when the signal is going into several layers of subpatches, some delay occurs which depends on the number of subpatches, the objects it goes through etc.. Whereas two metro objects started with the same BANG in different subpatches provide no extra delay.
