A feature request: the ability to enable "steady clock" when using the new plugin to smooth out multiple rapid clock changes. I had my CPU unexpectedly max out doing something in the background and it of course caused a lot of popping and clicking in my DAW - and it freaked the F out of the Midronome clock at the same time. I never change clock dozens of times per second in my music - maybe there's even an adjustable setting from 01 (tenths) to 10 (s) or something that locks out more than one clock change.
Thanks for the feedback. I am not sure I fully understand, your CPU got busy (doing something else), so you had a lot of pop/clicks in your DAW, and obviously the plugin could not send the signal properly so the sync was also off.
But I'm thinking if you had clicks and pops then you woudl re-record/redo it anyways? Or you would prefer in this case that the sync is maintained, using a mechanism as you said to prevent quick changes over a short amount of time?
Maybe there's no actual consequence or "cost" of having the Midronome and all connected devices attempting to change tempo dozens of times in a second for a few seconds because, as you say, I'd have to re-do that thing anyway. Hmm. Good point
Perhaps it's just a warning that gets added to the sync manual about how if there are latency issues (e.g., unexpected CPU load), then the Midronome plugin may temporarily lose sync, rapidly changing tempo for all connected devices for a short time.
I suppose if I had vintage gear (which I don't, personally), it might be a bit more concerning? But, then, those devices probably cannot react as quickly anyway.
At any rate, thanks for listening, and I do suggest you test out what happens so you can experience it for yourself and determine what, if any, action is needed.
