Sync'ing to bars

Hello again. I’ve wrapped a bunch of live_loops in “on” blocks so I can easily toggle them on and off. However, I would like to set it up in a way that after I toggle and hit run, it waits for the next bar (e.g. every 4 beats) before playing. I thought sync’ing to a live loop with cue followed by sleep 4 would work, however, this changes the timing of the loop. Is there some way I can achieve this?

Can you post the code you have do far?

Does the loop you want to sync have sleep commands in it?
I usually make a ‘metronome’ loop that cues its own tick value, so all other loops can sync to that without needing any sleep.

You can also set up the metronome loop to send individual triggers to loops.

Hi @aen1gma,

have a look if this helps in your situation:

Cheers guys. This worked by simply sync’ing to a live_loop that contained nothing but a sleep 4. I’m not even sure what I did wrong the first time… I must’ve been overthinking it :upside_down_face:

@Martin I also found the following in your code snippet which worked better than my approach for toggling loops on and off

stop if run_hiht == 0
