Coming from a Max background, one of the first things that I worked out 
was a Metro object:


That is overly simple, but a reasonable example.  From there you can do 
stuff like:

fun void beat(Metro m)
    while(m.pulse => now)
       <<< "beat" >>>;

Metro m;
spork ~ beat(m);

30::second => now;

ChucK lets you wait on events just like it lets you wait on arbitrary 
time or sample amounts, so it makes it easy to synchronize multiple 
shreds based on them.
