I’ll preface this with my question. Is there a reason Teletype is limited to 8 delays, and what possible pitfalls are there when working with teletype delays. More information can be found below if interested.
I recently implemented my first Teletype patch adding a new delay command
XDEL which creates multiple delays as a single command. The format is as follows:
XDEL x y: ...
y represent delay time and number of delays to queue.
y delays at spaced intervals of
x milliseconds. So for example
XDEL 500 3: X ADD X 1 would create 3 delay commands. The first would occur at 500ms, the second at 1000ms, and the third at 1500ms.
One interesting this about
XDEL is that it can act as a 1 line clock multiplier. For example:
XDEL DIV M 4 4: TR.P 1
Trigger 1 is pulsed 4 times at spaced intervals for each execution of the Metronome script. However this functionality is limited by the number of delays which Teletype can queue up. This brings me to my question in whether it is safe to increase the maximum number of delays.
