I can understand; after our first calculus lessons and we learn about
decimals we tend not to encounter remainders formally, certainly not
as something we'd like to see abbreviated as a single symbol. Once you
get it though, that line illustrates many of the nice things of
ChucK's way of dealing with time... and of course stuff that is
basically like modulo operator is all around us in our day to day

Exactly. Well, starting a .ck file isn't that much harder than
dragging in a wave into Live, I'd argue... ChucK just invites you to
also look into the *how*, which is a bit more challenging.

If you like Live (I personally think it is quite nice, though I
stopped buying upgrades) you might like to see whether you can
implement Ableton's quantise settings in ChucK, then move on to stuff
like those "follow actions" that Live has. That kind of stuff is quite
possible. From there on you can get more fancy.... :-)

Happy ChucKing,
