Ah I see. That makes sense. Not sure if you looked at the code or not,
but I have put provisions in for the patterns to have their own time
signature, as it is something I'm interested in experimenting with.
Still it raises some questions. This is fine if the app is timebase
master, then 1/4 time is guarantee-able, otherwise, the not quite so
simple approach to syncing 5/4 and 7/8 would be required.
It is something I've been wondering about without necessarily thinking
about syncing 5/4 and 7/8 together.
If in the app a pattern is edited with a 5/4 meter and the pattern is
precisely 1 bar long (ie 5 quarter notes right!?!?) then what if the
transport is playing at 4/4? Should the last beat in the 5/4 loop be
dropped, or should it just offset the start of the 5/4 loop each time?
