It frustrates me that so much of the discussions in this subforum are based around attacking and/or defending the very premise of it. Those who don't want to read it or post in it are free (and encouraged) to browse and post elsewhere.

I myself like the time signature thought line, initially. Smile

Back in the 80's, I started experimenting with mixing combinations of time signatures together, briefly.
It's an area that I'm going to be soon returning to, now having 3 sequencers built and a 4th one to be completed soonly. Smile

A nagging question that's been bugging me for a while though - is time division for polyrhythmic stuff.
Others have been mentioning using a divider (often based around a CD4017 10 step counter chip), to divide pulses into 3, 5, 7 / etc.

Working that out at work tonight on paper though - this to me just seems to be like a Divide by 7 count; divide by 5 count; etc. I.E. The counter will reset every # that you choose / spitting out a Gate, every 5, 7, etc. pulses.

I'm looking for something that can divide a time by a #. Like Frank Zappa, as an example. He use to write septuplets. (7 notes of equal timing, within a whole note, time frame. Stuff like that.)
THIS - is what I'm hoping to find a way to be able to do. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Something as simple as dividing a time slice into 3, could be used for making all of the other division combinations, when combined in multiples of 3's, 3's and 2's.

Thanks for any possible input on this. Smile
