[chuck-users] => now

Thanks Mario,

So once you started the VM to run,  time floats at the speed of  44100 times  a sec. So the "now" can only see things if they'r fed into it at a frequency less or even a 44100 th time of a second.

Does this mean that i can feed anything into the "now"? Or only things that contain a kind of trigger? But in case of a midi message this trigger  "min => now" kind of wakes up chuck to do the nex thing on the list? e.g. read the incoming message?

to be a bit more precise, when you have something like
min => now;
your program waits for a MIDI event in order to advance, but the ChucK time is still running.
Anyway, more info in the link I shared :)

Hi Herman,

You can use Events/MIDI/HID to advance in time.
Have a look at this chapter if you want to know more about it https://en.flossmanuals.net/chuck/_full/#events
In a nutshell what happens is that a MIDI event is received and that turns into a trigger, so your program advances in time. Otherwise it stays there until a MIDI even happens.
See it more as a trigger than a time constant if that makes sense.

I'm trying to understand what's really  happening in chuck.
I thought i did untill i saw some exemples of midi.

Normaly you can only feed time or duration into now ( e.g. 10::ms => now)
But in case you are awaiting a midi-in message you write :

MidiIn min;
while (true)
min => now

So in fact do you assign the message to time? Total confusion!
Thanks for your answer.
